Leave and Workers Comp Administrator (Contractor) (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 10, 2016
Great place to work, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Culture encourages and offers work/life balance with excellent, affordable company benefits. Retirement plan options are impeccable and in some cases compatible, if not better, than federal government benefits.
Sr Qlikview Lead (Current Employee) – Princeton, NJ – November 28, 2016
I learnt a lot in this company, good place for work ethics. Good Work culture Innovative Good place for team work Share information across company Treat people fairly Professional growth is given priority linking between people groups and organizations is good
Great place to work at. Everyone loves the free meals and snacks of course too. Great vacation to start at 4 weeks and superb health benefits. Very friendly teams open to new ideas and ways to improve on existing methods of going about daily operations. Would like to see them hire more contracted employees full time as there are several I interact with on a daily basis who have a great understanding of the business and go above and beyond every single day as well as have great knowledge of the terminal already.
Project assignment with little to know guidance as to what the overall goal is. Temp work was misguided and length of project was cut short. We were notified at the last minute we were no longer needed.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 21, 2016
Benefits are the best of the best and internal mobility is available if you show your worth. In some departments a typical day is 8-5 or 9-6 but it depends where you work, some departments don't offer much work life balance. Co-workers are considerate and the ticketing systems are very useful once you wrap your head around it all. The most enjoyable part if how much programming is available to engage employees in productive thought provoking topics.
Congressional Analyst Intern (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 4, 2016
I enjoyed my entire time there. The people pay careful attention to ensuring that folks have appropriate training. The workforce environment is also positive and open, allowing folks to excel in their positions and work harder than they ever realized.
Technical Operations (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 17, 2016
Management is lacking big time at this firm. They have a severe disconnect for what it is like to work as a rep in Technical Operations and thus do not offer any type of support or career development to move on further with your career. The pay scale here is horrible and offers ZERO transparency on why external hire that are new to the company receive a higher salary than a individual who works in the same role and has been there for years.
free snacks, coffee, drinks. great benefits and 401k plan
Lead Technician (Former Employee) – Totowa, NJ – October 14, 2016
Very nice people here. The place was one of my favorite places to work. People there always go above and beyond to help each other and always being polite. I just wish I could of be there longer. Project over and you move on in life.
Operations (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 6, 2016
Great place to get started in any position. Not for long term as stress levels will increase in time. Department managers are chosen internally and typically understand 15% of the departments functions..this forces any good long term employees to move on, thus losing a valuable resources for the company.
Data Center Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 9, 2016
A typical day would be to monitor the queue for incoming break fix tickets. These tickets range from service impacting high severity to low priority infrastructure work and operational updates. I've learned a wide variety of skills as diagnosing hardware issues, troubleshooting connection/link down events and also uploading and analyzing core/log files. Management can come down on you for small things, but that is because of Bloomberg is a multi-billion dollar company with potentially millions of dollars at risk. The hardest part of the job is multi tasking and handling multiple issues at once. Bloomberg has certainly helped with pressure. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning. You can learn a little bit of everything here. You can learn networking, storage, the various operating systems, troubleshooting, and much more if you are willing to put in the time.
Financial Software Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 18, 2016
The work environment was challenging and intellectually interesting. I was a software developer for the FX (foreign exchange) group. The hours were rather long, but the learning experience was rewarding.
Bloomberg is an excellent place to gain knowledge of the financial market. With their terminals, I was able to learn more about different industries and how they performed on a daily basis. While there, I worked on S&P 500 markets and various European markets. Data that I analyzed and corrected, would be updated in real-time to help provide an overall better trend analysis for clients.
