A place to start your carreer and move on
Company offers plenty of opportunities for advancement especially for univeristy graduates throught the Analytics career path. After the initial "Wow!" effect wears off the place is like any other big company. The culture and dynamic depends on the department with Analytics, the biggest department in the company being extremely competitive and you should be prepared for micromanagement.

Pros:

> people of different backgrounds and interests resulting in communities from Women in technology to board games. You will find someone you get along with

> plenty of benefits like pension, events, healthcare, nice office

> good place to begin career in finance as there are plenty of resources available to develop your knowledge and collaboration with other teams allows you to develop an all-round awareness of finance


Cons:

> being a large company management is a mess where priorities can shift rapidly resulting in projects being abandoned, resources misallocated and staffing shortages

> work can be extremely stressful whether due to sheer volume, micromanagement or expectations that are set too high to impress management up the food chain. There were cases of employees being sent to rehab as a result of burnout

> your performance and value is determined based on various stats so be prepared to be a "cog in the machine"

watch out for the backstabbers!!!
With very poor mgmt in place it was like the Wild west, Bloomberg takes your soul if you let it - they have their own weird processes - if you have an opinion and voice it you won't last long - they want robots!
Pros
Travel and food
Cons
Managment and work atmosphere

Smoke and mirrors. Avoid like a plague
check out the worst rated reviews - everything is true there.
Unnecessarily long hours, lack of direction and vision, no proper management while tons of petty micromanagement, form over substance all the way. Job satisfaction is a foreign concept in this place.

The company hires very bright people and treats them like imbeciles.

Mediocrity, hypocrisy and shallowness are actively encouraged.

A sinking ship...
Pros
Decent hotels for business travel
Cons

stressfull
high workload with very little use of modern methods/tools. Very dynamic but process not optimised. It is managed as a private company and very much New York centric.

Fine Place to Work
A good place to work for an initial start in a specific field or career. However, it is not a place for real progress, many people only spend a year or two then move to the next opportunity.

Great environment, not a great Deal of learning
The company is great, the people are great, but the actual working experience in the Global Data department isnt great. This even though the company is usually very flexible
Work includes lots of manual tasks and lack of great leadership hinders learning.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Lots of annoying tasks

Challenging environment
Vast company, challenging infrastructure, some amazing people. Some teams do exceptional work, philanthropy projects always fantastic to work on, lots of opportunity for young people, active seek fresh talent and encourage younger people to come in. Little separation of work and home life. Extremely long hours. Multi national management can be challenging and cause a disconnect
Pros
Free food

Vendor managed contract
As a senior member of the security provider for Bloomberg, I have never worked with such a forward-thinking, driven and ambitious business. The executive leadership team is keen to progress and professionalize this industry and have a clear plan on how to move this forward. Exceptional employers.

Good job overall.
A good job to have, but they don't offer permanent contracts, unfortunately... so you're in a constant renewal process.

Management is ok.


Location clean and welcoming!
Pros
Free lunches, fruits, drinks.
Cons
Schedule starts way too early.

Great culture - low salary
Great culture - low salary, somewhat progression, good benefits
a bit longer hours, but you get used to as the environment is very relaxed and you have time to catch up and meet new colleagues

Great culture, poor management
Great culture, poor management, flexible hours but random project. Difficult to grow and merit not based on result but relationships. Young and dynamic but not serious enough when it counts

Muitas possibilidades de progressão
Lots to learn about the software and financial industries. You'll find the place is highly collaborative and people work to get stuff done. The engineering culture is great.

You will deal with legacy technology. Even though a lot has been done to upgrade things, I don't think you'll ever get away from the legacy.


Would help to defer to folks who are at ground zero for many products. There are folks who really know what should be done, but don't get to.

Acceptable
This work place is acceptable, but no more. The hours are very long, while pay is not good at all. The workplace is absolutely secure, but people are being demanded quite a lot.
