West Coast Treasury and Risk Management (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – November 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
Full Time Employee (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 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.
Guest Experience Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 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.
Financial Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – October 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.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 10, 2018
I enjoy working at Bloomberg because of the openness it promotes amongst the employees and the non-hierarchical structure of management. As a larger organization, however, it has issues steering larger initiatives with a strategic sense of purpose.
sr relationship manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 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.
Senior Quality Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 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.
Business Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 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.
Little growth, lack of career opportunities, paternalistic culture, no vision for the future
Competitive culture with a lot of room for Advancement
INTERN (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – September 25, 2018
As an Intern at Bloomberg LP I learned how to be competitive but also work with my team. The company treats its employees extremely well. You work with highly skilled professionals. Thanks to them I learned how the Corporate World Works.
Documentarian Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 8, 2018
I worked in the Studio in a School internship. I loved it. Would recommend to any creative highschooler going into their Junior Summer. I got to create a documentary for Four Freedoms Park, probably the best job I've had ever so far in my life.
