    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.
