    I worked at Bloomberg BNA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you like chocolate there seems to be an endless supply here, they also have fruit on offer.

    Cons

    Too many to list, but for the benefit of those looking to work here I will try to be neutral. I can only speak for the UK London office, Sales training is SHOCKINGLY awful. I mean - there is no sales training, you have some videos to watch and some tests on product knowledge, and then you basically come in and the sales manager goes on calls with you, which leaves you with little room to breathe. Other sales managers...

    Advice to Management

    Adapt or perish. General inability to adapt is not helpful, you need to change the attitude of we have been doing sales like this for the last ten years and will continue to do so...landscape is changing so incorporate new ideas and listen to employees. Failure to do so will lead to eventual collapse. Communicate with your employees, get to know them, what makes them tick. Really try to build a culture of open communication,...

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England

      I worked at Bloomberg BNA

      Pros

      The products seem to be well respected in the market and I found a lack of outsized egos.

      Cons

      The office 'atmosphere' is moribund, there seems to be a lack of effective leadership and employee engagement.

      Advice to Management

      Clearer and more charismatic leadership needed.

      I worked at Bloomberg BNA full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      If you value sustainability, working with incredibly smart people, feeling like you are looped in on and understand the business goals, employee resource groups, contributing to a meaningful knowledge product, and having the option to join a union, this is one of the best places to work in the DC area, hands down.

      Cons

      My manager was innapropriate and often disrespectful. He frequently told me to “smile, it’s not that bad” when I was just trying to work and concentrate. He loved giving lugubrious and snarky feedback in written emails, although only did this once to me. I seemed to be the only recipient of the email. I was shocked when another manager responded “hahaha... good one.” When I shared how hurtful it was that he had blind...

      Advice to Management

      The slow drip drip of brain drain isn’t worth keeping even one talented but innapropriate and offensive person on staff, even if you’ve invested a lot in them. No single person is worth that cost to a Corporation. Many employees are sensitive and crave positive, nurturing, and affirmative environments. They pay very close attention to whether toxic personalities are kept onboard. That’s a key indicator of corporate culture...

      Such great benefits, pay. Several incentives to have employee feel like they are valued.

      Cons

      Your experience will depend on who is your manager. There are several managers who look to develop you and help you progress internally. There are others who don’t.

        Pros

        START is a very comprehensive program where you will learn about three different product lines. We have an assigned sales trainer who works with us for the training year. He is wonderful. I am half way through the year long program and I am so happy I came to Bloomberg BNA. I was nervous about making the move to Arlington, but I've made great friends through the START program. We socialize on the weekends and I know we...

        There is a lot to learn about all the products. This can be challenging, but we have great Sales Trainers working with us.
