Freedom to work independently

Core Metrics killed independence here

Attitude towards older colleagues

Horrible, few employees retire from here. Vast majority are laid off in late forties and fifties.

Job Security

Again if in your 20's and 30's you golden

Inclusive / Diverse

Very pro LGBT

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop age discriminating

What I like about the company

Good career for out of college

What I dislike about the company

They no longer respect hard work and creativity due to their failed core metrics and shortsightedness from upper management. Hopefully they will change and become a great place to work for once again.

Suggestions for improvement

  • less micro-management by the 'leaders' and maybe a less button up attitude on things.

What I like about the company

Honestly it's a very competitive and hard working work environment. But there is also the feeling that you are working with others who feel the same passion about what they do as you do. People are generally friendly, but keep in mind that everyone is trying to get ahead to so there are definitely some defending of the territory type stuff. All and all Bloomberg is a great company to work for. When people hear the name of your company they are always interested in what you do and in some way a prestige for work at such an institution.

What I dislike about the company

The only complaints I would say is that there is a lot of micro-managment going on, so if that's not your thing then you'll have a hard time adjusting. Also the long hours you put in definitely doesn't measure up to the pay you get. The pay grade is just average or even below average compared to other companies.

Company Culture

don't get OLD

Support from management

ZERO. Don't make me laugh

Teamwork

One way street where management and HR always WIN

Freedom to work independently

You have NO freedom

Internal Communication

One way street where management and HR always WIN

Attitude towards older colleagues

Bloomberg has no older colleagues, because they have been fired for making too much.

Overall compensation for your work

Don't get old and gray, if you do dye your hair to get rid of the gray.

Work-Life Balance

You are expected to put in about 12 hours of work a day for a salary.
NO home in Bloomberg

Don't get old or you are gone.
