    I worked at Bloomberg BNA full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    If you value sustainability, working with incredibly smart people, feeling like you are looped in on and understand the business goals, employee resource groups, contributing to a meaningful knowledge product, and having the option to join a union, this is one of the best places to work in the DC area, hands down.

    Cons

    My manager was innapropriate and often disrespectful. He frequently told me to “smile, it’s not that bad” when I was just trying to work and concentrate. He loved giving lugubrious and snarky feedback in written emails, although only did this once to me. I seemed to be the only recipient of the email.

    Advice to Management

    The slow drip drip of brain drain isn’t worth keeping even one talented but innapropriate and offensive person on staff, even if you’ve invested a lot in them. No single person is worth that cost to a Corporation. Many employees are sensitive and crave positive, nurturing, and affirmative environments.

    Pros

    Such great benefits, pay. Several incentives to have employee feel like they are valued.

    Cons

    Your experience will depend on who is your manager. There are several managers who look to develop you and help you progress internally. There are others who don’t.

      Pros

      START is a very comprehensive program where you will learn about three different product lines. We have an assigned sales trainer who works with us for the training year. He is wonderful. I am half way through the year long program and I am so happy I came to Bloomberg BNA. I was nervous about making the move to Arlington, but I've made great friends through the START program. We socialize on the weekends and I know we...

      There is a lot to learn about all the products. This can be challenging, but we have great Sales Trainers working with us.

      More communication across different business units with feedback would benefit the organization.

      Pros

      The benefits are somewhat good

      Cons

      Horrible place. You cannot go to HR when you have a compliant since all they do is fire people or they partner up with managers to help get rid of you

      Advice to Management

      Hopefully upper mamagement will open their eyes.
