    Pros

    Amazing office, great ambiance and vibes, transparency, free food If you perform well, they will invest so much in you from knowledge to mental health wise Philanthropy Diversity Great culture Dynamic work, never dull

    Cons

    Really I don't have much. Just the fact that if you quit, even if for personal reasons like do a MBA or a family matter, it is impossible to go back in

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Meet some really genuine people, pantry. Pay is decent enough with no real incentive to go extra mile. Performance review process can be doctored with zero transparecny in the process. Constant over internal emphasis on a culture that is preached but hardly practised which demoralises and fosters detachment.

    Cons

    No true training or development outside of product training for sales, they move you around laterally to different product teams like a chess piece however there is no real progression. Do not encourage but rather view professional certification or upskilling outside of Bloomberg products with suspicion. Internal barriers to complete deals or small sales are sometimes enormous. Management keep chiming about office being a meritocracy to justify a metric driven system for performance review however what really matters is how much you can BS your way to the top by "telling a story".

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

    Pros

    Fast paced. Good opportunities to travel and they don’t skimp on the perks. Also good opportunities to learn about financial markets if you don’t come from a financial markets background.

    Cons

    Very flat structure. They also overload reps as there’s a mentality to say yes to everything and it’s perceived as weak to say you don’t have bandwidth. Also zero flexibility.

    Pros

    - Pantry - Nice office in central location

    Cons

    - Long hrs focusing on face-time - Extremely draconian micromanagement - think George Orwell Animal Farm - Politics, politics, politics - HR is a joke - Everything is metric driven therefore encourages short-term thinking - Unrealistic sales targets in oversaturated market set by management who do not have experience in markets they set targets for - If you don’t meet targets you will be put on performance plan - Trying to be in every business line rather than focusing on core competencies in a desperate bid to maintain market share - If you drop dead tomorrow they will replace you in a week - After employees leave no one dares whisper their name
