    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.

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

    Pros

    - If you receive good projects, you can learn a lot, then you will be given even better projects. - Can work with News / Sales should you interested in connecting with people - Have training on programming / data analysis if you did not have prior knowledge - No racism is allowed, which is a big pros nowadays?

    Cons

    - There aren't many good projects - Management does not do a good job in giving out equal opportunity - Some analysts with relatively worse skills could be promoted which hammer the morale a little bit. - Very self-driven environment, if you did nothing, you will feel isolated instantly and no one would really care.

    "Think carefully, especially for fresh graduates"

    Former Employee - Financial Product Sales and Analytics in Hong Kong
    Doesn't Recommend

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - work life balance. Almost everyone is gone by 630pm in HK/SG. - breakfast (bread, occasional fried food, eggs, fruits) - Well stocked pantry - excellent welfare (great insurance policy, wellness claims, occasional event food/snacks) - great colleagues (after all they are in the same boat as you in analytics but not so much nice people in sales) - higher than average pay for fresh graduates. - market hire? Don’t think about going to sales then, you are stuck in analytics forever. - working in AU/HK (0.5-2 years) has the fastest career progression, SG/JP slowest (~2 years to sales)

    Cons

    - no relocation and rental package - micromanagement on point, they ensure you have deliverables for every hour of work - good luck going to toilet/pantry break (how long did you went off-help desk when you are scheduled to be on). Yes, everything is recorded and reflected in your statistics, which will then be recorded in your statistics. - not all seniors/upper managers are nice/understanding. They expect you to know your stuff and attend to as many help desk queries as possible. - high stress during help desk hours. Imagine serving 3 demanding and impatient clients at one time. - moral is low. This job is not suitable for everyone. Not much transferable knowledge/skills. Hard to jump elsewhere. - if you are a fresh graduate, this place is not recommended. Come here only when you really decided to stay throughout as this could be your last job since it is hard to jump elsewhere but you will be able to climb and transfer within the company. - pay increment is peanuts unless you’re at the top 10-20% - everyone is benchmarked against Asia and eventually global performance to determine your performance - This accurately describes your job - search for "What is it like to work at sales and analytics at Bloomberg" on Quora and you will understand more about it. - please don’t ask any current employees on life here, they will give you political correct answers.
