    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Combining the best of the financial and technological elements of the job market, Bloomberg is an excellent firm to work for. Driven by results, but with a fair work-life balance : allowing each employee to adapt accordingly to their ambition and personal/family needs. Excellent facilities (their London office is the best in the world) and perks. Firm has a fantastic track record since its inception.

    Cons

    It could create an internal platform for innovative ideas; or partnering with employees launching new enterprises.

    Pros

    Brand name, good office space

    Cons

    For long term career growth here, you need to suck up to your managers. Hard work, commitment, and potential do not matter here. Lower tier managers are as intelligent as school kids. I was surprised by how low the business acumen of the people here are.
