    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Combining the best of the financial and technological elements of the job market, Bloomberg is an excellent firm to work for. Driven by results, but with a fair work-life balance : allowing each employee to adapt accordingly to their ambition and personal/family needs. Excellent facilities (their London office is the best in the world) and perks. Firm has a fantastic track record since its inception.

    Cons

    It could create an internal platform for innovative ideas; or partnering with employees launching new enterprises.

    Pros

    * a lot of competent developers * office is amazing * competitive salary * good work-life balance

    Cons

    * very bureaucratic and political * not a meritocracy * far more profitable to get along with everybody and do a mediocre job, than fighting for something and hurting feelings

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing office and mostly amazing colleagues. Most Product Managers exemplify the Bloomberg culture of customer focus and knowing the customer, having previously worked in the Customer Services department (a.k.a. Analytics). Solid work/life balance. Fair compensation.

    Cons

    There has been an increase in numbers of arrogant, bullying and unprofessional people hired from investment banking culls, working in Product Management teams and creating an increasingly toxic environment for others. Acting like failed traders with a chip on your shoulder will only make yourselves known as such.
