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

    Pros

    Very helpful culture, people will stop what they are doing to help you immediately. Work life balance is decent, people do their best not to contact you after 6pm. Work hard play hard. Work hours can be very hectic but this is the trade off for a quieter evening. Comparatively less politics.
