Bloomberg selected this as a representative review
Progressive, modern, fun environment, lots of freedom, benefits, perks, and so much more!
Solaris Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJanuary 16, 2019
Walking to the new building is impressive... enter, elevator, exit on main floor with main kitchen area. Glance over at the koi pond as I grab some Asian fruit and a Brazilian drink and head over to my floor. Clean, exciting, fun environment. Lots of opportunity.
Pros
Nearly everything!
Cons
you can end up working too much, because you love your job!

Bad Pay, Little Mobility
German Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJJanuary 9, 2019
Learned all about financial statements, working with 10Ks, 10Qs, and the foreign equivalents. Management wanted to keep my group doing our project, instead of hiring us for different projects, because we spoke foreign languages and wanted to keep us as contractors.
Pros
Free food, drinks
Cons
Stifling atmosphere, little upward mobility for contractors

Promoted a very collaborative environment
Senior Product Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 2, 2019
Very dynamic organization that promotes collaboration. Large public pantry area for folks to gather and converse over coffee. Everyone wore name badges so that they could introduce themselves and discuss the work they were doing in various departments.
Pros
Encouraged creativity, do not be afraid to fail.

Never ending changes
Full Time Employee (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 31, 2018
Never ending changes coming from upper management. Training is inadequate and management does not take the time to review the repercussions of their never ending changes in procedures. The company can be an amazing place to work if more emphasis is spent on management & employee communication. The company mainly focuses on recruiting young talent resulting in high turnover but neglects the concept of the older more experience employee as being more dedicated and loyal. Once again, potentially a great company if they can only slow down and perfect what they have first and think through changes before rushing to the finish line.

Innovative and fast paced work environment.
Guest Experience Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 30, 2018
My team is the first point of contact for everyone that enters the building. We greet and orient guests into the building. I have learned to proficiently use the Bloomberg Terminal along with SMILE, a user check in program. Bloomberg is a fast paced environment and I've grown accustom to it and even to like it. The hardest, yet most exciting part of the job would be multitasking various projects and guests needs at once.
Pros
Twenty four hour pantry and transparency.

Smart ppl with good and capable management
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 19, 2019
Great company to work for... Start-Up environment with great tech and really smart engineers.

I learned alot about SOA while there, how to work with mutli-tiered systems. As well as how to work with key members of the business to understand their needs and iterating until the customers needs are met.

A place to work
Financial Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJOctober 30, 2018
I was very good at my job & was not allowed to be promoted. They prefer to hire kids who have no interest in their company long-term. My understanding is that they believe they're an elite organization but hire kids out of college not people with diverse career backgrounds, i.e. didn't always work 9-5 corporate jobs. The experience a very mixed bag.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
They rarely promote temps.

Good learning
Equity Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 14, 2019
Excellent teaching in the analytics program. Given great broad knowledge of financial markets. Very solid entry level job if financial markets or sales is the direction. Poor managerial structure however. Path is dependent upon the quality of the team leader which is a coin flip. Very corporate/political.

Moving on
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 28, 2019
The company mission would be great if it were followed. No opportunity for advancement or growth in learning new skills. False promises made to complete current business plans and employees are stagnated in their growth. Technology, systems and selling are out-dated.
Cons
management, lack of opportunity, out-dated systems

Bloomberg
sr relationship manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 5, 2018
My department at Bloomberg was in a downward spirial for over 3 years. There were many layoffs in this time period and I knew my day was going to come. The secretive ways, keeping employees in the dark, no direction, no leadership was the most difficult part of day to day life.
I am a leader, a developmental person who collaborates and coordinates with my team and clients...I need this type of environment to prosper in.
Pros
how the department was 4 years ago
Cons
poor leadership

Low growth, few opportunities for top performers
Business Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 26, 2018
The core business has little growth and the company suffers from classic innovator's dilemma. Lack of risk taking or open mindedness to doing things differently translates into a stultifying environment in which to work. Management culture is paternalistic command-and-control. Office and pantry are beautiful but only the optics of being a vibrant, progressive place to work.
Pros
Pantry
Cons
Little growth, lack of career opportunities, paternalistic culture, no vision for the future

Wonderful company to work
Senior Quality Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 29, 2018
Very good company. It treats employees really well. A lot of benefits. Open company culture. Flexible working hours. Drawback is the working places is open to everybody so it is noisy and management is a little bit chaotic. Hierarchy is flat so there its not much promotion opportunities. But overall it is a very great company.

West Coast Treasury and Risk Management (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 5, 2018
Company was great collaborative place to work when I started in 2006 and was almost the complete opposite in 2016, with collaboration having gone out of the window and it had become an in-house, silo competing business, with the client being the ultimate loser

REVENUE ANALYST | GLOBAL FINANCE (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 17, 2018
No structured training or mentoring program for employees makes it confusing to build a career there, but whatever job you have should offer plenty to keep you challenged. And the company takes great care of its employees

Great place to begin your career.
Broadcast Operator / Transmissions Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New York, NY 10022February 10, 2019
Most slowly creep up the ranks, if at all even. That said, there is job stability here like nowhere else in the industry. Superior employee benefits, and employees are valued by the company.

Enjoy working here. Can explore new technologies while maintaining legacy systems. Company always thrives for great results. Management has too much control and can get blind sided.

Okay place to work
Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJOctober 29, 2018
People at Bloomberg are nice.
But this company is experiencing an identity issue as it wants to be evolved into a tech company instead of being recognized as a financial data company.
Pros
Free lunch, nice co-workers
Cons
TLs without any kind of vision for the future of this company
