Energetic working environment, fluid management practices
Database Architect/Technical Lead (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 14, 2018
Coding and code reviews is how a typical day was spent. Tough working on infrastructure side, no leverage, little incentive, poor management. Hostile management when you defied or did not 'toe the party line'
Pros
Technical skills improved, tremendous learning curve at my first job, great team work for some years
Cons
Poor management, no advancement on merit alone, perception over reality took precedent too often, old boy's club

Chief Operating Staff (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 13, 2018
Bloomberg is a frenzy of activity. The culture is centered around getting the job done so meetings are kept to a minimum. Innovation is all around. Work/life balance can be difficult but compensation is excellent.
Pros
energetic, innovative, good compensation and benefits
Cons

Great Company
IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 12, 2018
Bloomberg is a great company to work for.

They really care about their employees and show this in the facilities provided them. The company's Philanthropic work is second to none.

The Bloomberg terminal is a tough system to learn but capable of amazing things.


The people at Bloomberg are amazing. They are resilient, smart and hard working.

The office environment is corporate but not overly so.
Pros
The company, the people and the culture
Cons
Call Center attitude often focusing on quantity over quality

Sales Director, Americas (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 7, 2018
overall BLP is a wonderful place to work. Tremendous amount of job security and have tools to help you be very efficient.
The level of work and lack of flexibility make it a challenge for the long term.
Culture changed quickly upon mike's return.

Brand Storytelling (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 31, 2018
Bloomberg is a great organization, but with its ever changing business model and leadership, I would recommend you stay away from the Bloomberg Media Group.

Commission Management - Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 30, 2018
Lots of internal fighting and back stabbing. They are constantly changing managers and CEO's and some areas are without managers. And the managers they place in charge are not experienced in the specialty product or service.
Pros
great training and they invest in their employees
Cons
some managers are sneaky and move you out

This position was Meh
Data Scientist (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJMay 28, 2018
Old tech and practices. High resistance to change / new tech. Not as agile/lean (a lot of bureaucracy) as advertised in the interviewing process. Overall there was a lot of "heads down" coding before doing real validated MVPs or validating any other methods... this was highly well known by other staff as "the Bloomberg way". Not a place to grow if you're top talent / are experienced in modern tech stacks / have a lot to offer.

Great Benefits, Fast Paced Environment, Very Secure
Network Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Orangeburg, NYMay 22, 2018
Bloomberg has top notch benefits and great accommodations. Work can be very fast paced and have high pressure, but teams and co-workers are very collaborative. The culture lends to transparency and constant interactions with employees of different levels and job function. Bloomberg is very technologically driven and ever-changing, but has great loyalty to its employees. The amount of coworkers who have been at the company for years upon years is a testament to that. However, financial growth in terms of employee salary can grow stagnant even with those who perform at a high level.
Pros
Great benefits and amenities.
Cons
Salary growth

Production Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 12, 2018
What I learned at Bloomberg News I will continue to find useful in every following professional endeavor. The workspace there has given me the opportunity to work in a professional production studio with high end equipment. Everyday had a valuable challenge providing me the opportunity to problem solve and become used to a work environment that requires quick thinking.

Tough place to work
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 25, 2018
More internal meetings and more reports than any other company in media. Estimate after estimate after estimate. Estimate is to low so you have to increase it with no rationale. Now estimate is too high so you have to lower it. Always adjusting on a daily basis. You have many bosses. Usually one boss per advertising category
Pros
Maternity leave is 5 month paid
Cons
Managed by fear and reports

SENIOR INFOMATIONAL GRAPHICS/VISUAL DESIGNER (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 14, 2018
Company is getting much better at business news and seems to have committed to this arm of the company. They own the "information" space and understand the power of that property.
