      The Bloomberg Way

      Pros

      +Good salary potential +Good reputation +Ability to interact with anyone within the financial industry from back office to C-Suites.

      Cons

      +Zero flexibilty +80s US-leadership style which can be very brutal if you do not follow the Bloomberg way. + There are basically 4 people in the company who get whatever they want and everybody does what they say. Then there is "Mike" who is seen as god. Any middle manager would jump of a cliff if they were asked to as if not they wouldnt be in their position. +Your own opinion doesn't matter. +HR is non existent. Even if HR is involved the decision making is always done by sales.

      Nice company

      Pros

      Nice company, I enjoyed working there. It genuinely cared for its employees. There was a good atmosphere, great perks like the pantry and the amazing family-friendly summer party, continuous learning with lots of offerings for online and face to face training and the flexible working from home policy, with all the tech in the office supporting people connecting from home or collaborating remotely. Great engineering community. Very good philanthropy and volunteering culture, I felt proud to be part of Bloomberg and have so many genuine opportunities to make an impact Comp was good but not as good as in other Big Tech or finance companies, at least back then (I left a few years ago)

      Cons

      Too much outdated, proprietary tech, I felt a lot of it wouldn't be useful in my next jobs. Hard to use cutting-edge tech. Employees could have a totally different experience, great or awful, depending on their management chain. And not much was done to quickly correct management issues leading to stress, anxiety and attrition.

      A place to grow and show what you can do

      Pros

      The people is Bloomberg's best asset. There are so many talented and nice people to work with and learn from. People are also almost always extremely helpful even though every one has more on their plate than they can realistically handle comfortably. This trains you to become efficient and a multitasker. What I have learned is that even the most impossible things are possible to accomplish by getting the right people to work together.

      Cons

      In certain parts of the organisation, management have a tendency to micro manage and flexibility is almost non-existent. It really depends on who your manager is if you need any type of flexible working - Working from home (ad hoc is easier to get, but as a fixed arrangement you will probably not get more than 1 day a week), flexible working hours, or flexible location of working is not always a possibility - again, it depends on your department and direct manager. Also, in some departments a blaming culture is prevalent, which really affects morale.
