Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJNovember 25, 2016
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.

Lack of direction
Fundamentals Analyst (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJNovember 22, 2016
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.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
Bad management

Amazing company
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 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.

Professional, structured work environment
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 13, 2016
Bloomberg manages a large and complex set of software for obtaining, analyzing, and disseminating financial information.

They have a high degree of structure and process that software developers must adhere to. This is necessary, but it can also be overwhelming for some people.

They have a "people-oriented" corporate culture.
Pros
State of the art software tools in some cases.
Cons
Lots of procedures and process.

Great workplace terrible management
Technical Operations (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 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.
Pros
free snacks, coffee, drinks. great benefits and 401k plan
Cons
bad management, terrible pay

Great place to work
Operations (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 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.
Pros
You'll meet and work with some great people
Cons
Management is clueless

Terminal Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 13, 2016
Great first job. Learned a lot and had a great training program. Management can be secretive at times. Not much room for growth or upward mobility. Great co-workers and fun place to work.

Opportunity to learn in an intense environment
Data Center Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 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.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Pressure, Stress

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 Review
Equities Analyst (Former Employee) –  Skillman, NJAugust 18, 2016
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.
