    I worked at Bloomberg Industry Group full-time for less 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 might be different, but they are all based in the US, the sales structure is strange where there is just one team dealing with sales outside of North America. So no room to progress if you want to move into management you have to wait for people to leave. Treatment of contractors is equal to treatment of second class citizens. Its appalling to see really. Leadership in the office have zero interest in their own employees well being. A lot of fake sincerity and lack of authenticity at the top which kills the motivation of employees. Also leadership sits in glass bowls away from employees - the power distance is ridiculous. No one is happy. I mean no one on the permanent staff seem truly happy. There is a sense that they are all desperate to leave if an opportunity came their way. There are toxic employees too - those who just complain, and emanate with negativity, because they have worked at BNA for years management can't get rid of them. The office is deathly quiet - no one talks, no communication. And when I say no communication I mean it - think about the repercussions regardless of what job you do if people don't talk? Too much unspoken resentment for the MD. Toxic.

     in London, England

    I worked at Bloomberg Industry Group

    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.

    I have been working at Bloomberg Industry Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Guaranteed raises; 37.5 Hr work weeks; leave the work at the door; personally have a great manager (but have heard horror stories from others); technically allowed to WFH and have condensed work weeks (per the Guild contract) but can be hard to get your manager to approve

    Cons

    Can feel like you don't matter; things tend to feel like a revolving door; good benefits but they use that fact to stiff you on the pay; can be hard to get some benefits that you are entitled to

    I worked at Bloomberg Industry Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Bloomberg Industry Group has high standards for its products and services and works hard to get talented people to meet them. This is a well-run organization that invests in employees with good salaries, good benefits, advancement opportunities and a positive work environment.

    Cons

    The hardest part of my job was responding to changing company objectives. Market trends drive priorities so this may be an occupational hazard.

    Pros

    I have been at the company over 8 years -- it is a fantastic place to work. The company really takes care of its people. The company culture is dynamic, fast paced, and provides lots of opportunity for continual learning and growth.

    Cons

    Don't see this as a con, but change and innovation is constant which makes it an exciting place to work if you thrive in that atmosphere

    I worked at Bloomberg Industry Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, and some talented people.

    Cons

    I joined a company with a proud history and promising future. Several years (and several presidents) later, the company I left was a shell of its former self. Largely bereft of its intellectual capital due to repeated layoffs and guided by the shiny object syndrome, it's not a happy place to be.
