Great Internship
Recruiting Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAMarch 31, 2016
Management here was awesome for my internship and it is the reason I ended up taking a Career in Recruiting. They do a great job of breaking you into cold calling and take a lot of time training interns in valuable business lessons. Couldn't be more happy I interned here

Current changes make it challenging
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 21, 2016
Although the company prides itself on finding the right role for talent, often if you are in a bad management relationship you might as well be on an island alone. HR is ruthless and not helpful and no one's job is secure. Potential to be great, but watch your back.
Pros
free snacks, comradery is strong
Cons
constant micro management, compensation metrics change at whim

Lots of change - could go either way
Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington DCApril 22, 2015
many re-orgs since acquired by Bloomberg in 2011. All this change has created very little opportunity for existing employees and there is little room to advance here.
Pros
Free food and beverages in large "pantry"

Information Company Beginning to Lose Values that Made it Strong
Editor (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VASeptember 8, 2014
BNA was a staple of strong, balanced in-depth information about the government and policies for over 50 years. The company prided itself on providing information people needed to know, and the information was unbiased and accurate.

BNA was bought by Bloomberg LP about 4 years ago. Now that the companies have integrated, the parent company is sending more and more personnel from New York to DC to impose the NY way. Long-term employees who are subject matter experts are no longer as valued, and are being laid off and let go in favor of younger reporters willing to work longer hours for less money. Benefits are being tailored to appeal to a transient work force. The Bloomberg BNA emphasis is changing from "Get it Right" to "Get it First".
Pros
good benefits due to union negotiation; free snacks and beverages
Cons
little chance for advancement; management seeking to break union; punitive attitude

Legacy company working on innovation
SENIOR RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAMarch 30, 2014
With Bloomberg having bought BNA about 2 years ago, there have been a lot of changes happening. The company has been working on creating new brand recognition while consistently delivering the reliable content our customers expect.

Because of changing culture there is a lot of opportunity for new ideas and innovative thinking. Changing the perception of the brand and all the product developments does mean that the work-life balance has been a little off lately. But getting to contribute to these innovations is worthwhile.

The people working at Bloomberg BNA are hard-working passionate people who want the best for each other and the brand.
Pros
pantry (free snacks and coffee), great location, intelligent coworkers
Cons
not a lot of room to move-up, some outdated technology, work hours are not very flexible

Solid, though more slow-moving company

Keep in mind that Bloomberg BNA is not really a tech company, which means that you may be limited in terms of the technologies you'll use

Cons
my commute is long
