    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Higher-than-average salaries for News business, health insurance for employee & family covered at no employee cost, lots of bureaus around the world if you're inclined to work abroad, fairly flat hierarchy, layoffs are almost unheard of, generous leave by U.S. standards (4 weeks)

    Cons

    Mandatory 10-hr workdays (including 1-hr lunch), draconian responses to human errors (including firings), company policy that forbids rehiring employees who leave to take a job elsewhere, and a tendency to burn out employees with long workdays and demands for ever-higher output.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the "if you leave, you're dead to us" policy; employees who return could provide much needed cross-pollination to Bloomberg culture, which can be sterile. Mandatory 10-hr days are a recipe for burnout.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone interview. The phone interview was very straightforward, and the woman was very nice. They asked me questions that are expected, such as why Bloomberg. They also asked why I thought I would be good at a sales role. They expected me to have done some research on the culture at bloomberg.
