    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

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

    Pros

    * Well paid, good bonuses and rises * Engineering focused company with lots of smart people who love C++ * Lots of free food and drinks etc.

    Cons

    * Some roles are a lot more interesting than others. I was in a boring role maintaining an ancient and horrific javascript code base * Too many Bloomberg specific frameworks and tech with not good enough docs or guides. * Standard work day is 8.30 to 6.30, The last hour and a half of every day my brain just checked out and I would sit staring at the clock because the day was so long.
