    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very smart colleagues; highly international organisation; feeling of being part of something special; always at the cutting edge of developing news.

    Cons

    Very poor management; managers in news almost always have very poor people skills; zero respect for work-life balance; limited opportunities for progression outside of the role you were hired in; eventually you start to feel like just a cog in a giant machine that can be replaced at any time.

    Pros

    Diverse group of very interesting people work here. Job roles are var Ed and can change regularly.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is terrible. It is still run like a bank from the 80s. Rigid work conditions. They pay lip service to modern flexible working but in reality anyone working from home is looked down upon. People are evaluated via stack ranking that forces a normal distribution which just encourages mediocrity.
