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

    Pros

    Bloomberg has style. It's a vibrant environment with great people. Their hiring process was tough. If you get through: They pay well and of course expect good work in return. IT-support was the best ever!

    Cons

    Their open-plan offices are great but can be a little distracting. It's a large international organisation so some decisions take time longer.

    Pros

    The colleagues are great and the benefits are quite good. The possibility of path and career advancements, as well as international moves are good.

    Cons

    Coming as an outsider it takes a while to adjust to the very collegiate and child like company culture. They boast a flat structure, but in reality it's quite hierarchical as everywhere.

    Senior Software Developer in City of London, England

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Opportunities in both the product and development domains. Heavy growth and considered risks to promotions and opportunities for the less-experienced. The good departments manage poor performers aggressively and pay commensurately. Those willing to invest their heart and soul thrive.

    Cons

    Alpha-males thrive, the socially awkward are suppressed. NY-centric and lack of understanding/awareness of other locations. Upper management rule with an iron grip yet frequently prove to be the blockage. Timetables are often dictated to allow flexibility for the privileged few, at the expense of the many.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Good working environment and colleagues. The office itself is quite nice and a big kitchen with all sorts of snacks.

    Cons

    Most of the senior management have their positions solely because they joined Bloomberg from the beginning. They do not have a lot of exposure and experience of rest of the world and are not very competent in management and technology and unfortunately they also have a lot of authority and ego. This causes miss-treatment towards lower level staff and policies that don't make a whole lot of sense. If one does not gel well with the management layer, no matter how competent you are, you career and salary will not progress that far.
