    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Base pay is average to good

    Cons

    Closed up culture with discrimination under the hood. There's constant pressuring and pushing around of people while other individuals get by easily. As a result the top layer is empowered to take advantage and snitch on coworkers whether it's right or wrong - no questions are asked. The philanthropy that keeps coming up is more like a coverup to what's going on within its very own self internally. Work is not very inspiring.
