    Really I don't have much. Just the fact that if you quit, even if for personal reasons like do a MBA or a family matter, it is impossible to go back in

    Pros

    If you're interested in current affairs/ news and technology you can go in-depth and learn a lot. The job gives as much as you're willing to take from it; it's a fast-past and stimulating place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes EMEA taps in the dark and ultimately follows what the US decides.
    Schmoozing with the people higher up than you plays an important role here.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, amazing offices, great health insurance, work with really smart people, lots of travel

    Cons

    difficult to work your way up the ranks. Lots of internal politics, no commission structure in sales dept - which is crazy. I had 4 managers in 15 months, senior mgmt communication not great

    Advice to Management

    introduce a commission structure into the sales teams. Not much incentive there at the moment. More flexibility in terms of working hours and WFH
