Good people, great environment
Senior Linux Systems Administrator (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 5, 2014
Bloomberg has potential to be a great company, however upper management has made it impossible to get work done. This will lead to the goals not being met as a company.

Team members have to go through too many middle managers to get their job done.

Pros: free lunches
Bloomberg is a company that emphasizes transparency. The culture is very open where your relationships between your coworkers and superiors are tight. You communicate with everyone on a daily basis and the chain of command is not as structured as you might find in other companies. The atmosphere is very relaxed but the employees there are also very – more... hard working. – less

Highly Technical workplace, wide range of Hardware
Technical Support - Network Engineering (Former Employee), LondonJune 27, 2014
Pros: free snacks and coffee.
Cons: long hours, no overtime
Working at Bloomberg is an experience in the fast moving and high pressure of financial information with High end Technology. State of the Art Hardware, and hard working Engineers and Technicians. Every day is different, client interfacing . A day can start with a fault on a router, and end with a Site installation of equipment with remote engineers – more... and customers technical teams.. It is sometimes a very intensive pressure, but highly rewarding when you work with dedicated and professional individuals. – less

Micromanagement and Limited Skill Building
Senior News Analyst / Headline Editor (Former Employee), Princeton, NJMay 19, 2014
Bosses, not leaders. Notorious culture of micro-managers that look to weed out any non-conformists or black sheep. If you're a worker bee or afraid to speak up, you'll fit in. If you question the oft poor thought out planning and lack of vision, it's not a place for you. Bloomberg was once a place of innovation and creativity---sadly, those days have – more... passed. – less

Love its efficiency
Economic Statistic Data Researcher (Former Employee), Hong Kong, HKIApril 2, 2014
The lifestyle itself in Hong Kong is notoriously fast pace. A typical work day for me is from 8am to 6pm and surrounded by 3 to 4 monitors at my desk. I do not complain about my hours, and in fact, I actually feel blessed compare to those who work until midnight (It happens all the time).

However, to speak the truth, I do not enjoy being surrounded – more... by 4 monitors with fixed setting on brightness because they started hurting my eyes after staring at them for a long period of time, and I tried different ways to adjust the level of brightness but still it did not work. Yet, I grew to like having more than 2 monitors in terms of working efficiently, I love how quickly I can get my job done without switching between tabs, especially I dealt with high volume of financial data and researching in companies.

For management style, it really depends on who. Everyone has ones own belief and definition on efficiency, professionalism, style to approach individuals etc. Nonetheless, the overall style I get from them is very supportive.

Hardest part of the job is communication on internal group chats. Everyone has brilliant ideas, however, in order to glue all the pieces together does take time to 1) step back and organize and 2) rethink it thoroughly.

Most enjoyable part of the job is to get to work with many brilliant minds. – less
