    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best thing and most grateful is to start within a class of 20+ people and together go through the same bad experience. Becoming stronger together and helping each other every day

    Cons

    Worst Micromanagement , NOTHING is like they describe or sell the job like. There is a reason why every month a new class is starting - because after couple months people quit. it’s like a call center , a help center , every step and breathe you take is monitored on statistics. How often you leave your desk How often you take a break How often you run to the toilet How many tickets you solve within a day How many calls you make Nothing to do with the financial markets, your job is to help the clients how to use Bloomberg so they can trade properly .. meaning - they will come to you when their chat is glitching, where to find specific things, how to put data in excel etc pp. You will become a Bloomberg product yourself by that time. You’re so much under time pressure to solve as many client tickets as possible because the whole world is using Bloomberg to trade and everyone has questions on how to set up an alert or change the language etc. If you’re longer than a year there, 90% of the people start to accept their miserable life and get sucked into just answering questions day to day and get paid for it. If you’re not ambitious and don’t have big goals , don’t want to get into finance / banking then you probably will enjoy it.

    Current Employee - Corporate Marketing Employee in London, England

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * steep learning curve at first * tech and finance trainings * benefits, eg Vitality insurance, free food, cultural events, sports etc * international environment * can work from offices all over the world

    Cons

    * performance evaluation based on strict metrics * work can be extremely repetitive * Juniors will hardly get any mentoring, coaching from TLS/managers, if you want to evolve you'll need to take initiative and push yourself. * Many analysts are too smart for their jobs
