Great Position for College Student
Bloomberg Assessment Test Student Ambassador (Former Employee), Columbus, OHNovember 18, 2014
I was the first person to bring the Bloomberg Assessment Test to The Ohio State University campus and I would consider it a successful endeavor. Even though my manager was located in New York she was fantastic. If a question or concern arose she was extremely approachable and always available. I was given a lot of freedom in this position which allowed me to blossom and really make my projects my own.

Excellent benefits and perks. Best atmosphere. Great people.
Unfortunately, company has changed in this last year and job security is not stable. Absolutely not the place to be if you care about your personal life.

Communications (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 27, 2014
Pros: flexibility, autonomy and many perks like benefits, travel and snacks
Cons: no career advancement
Bloomberg is a great company full of young folks that work hard. There is a lot of opportunity for young employees to take on added responsibility if they are willing to ask for it; however, the flat structure prevents anyone from having a clearly defined role and many employees are able to get by without doing much work at all. No one ever gets fired.

Operations Risk Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: never know what is up next. new products, people and locations.
Cons: inconsistant management
Long work day in a fast pace environment with a priority on customer service. Company provided exceptional employee services and a pleaseant work space. All office sites provided with complementary pantry that included snacks, beverages and breakfast.

The most difficult part of the job is adapting to constant change management and company direction, which is part of the companies success.

The culture of shared company success across departments from the person that stocked the pantry to the person that worked in shipping or sale. The company always reconized each employees contribution to maintain existing clients and attract new business.

Interims estimates analyst (Former Employee), Cape townAugust 17, 2014
Pros: food; good social responsibility program
Cons: remuneration; niche product; poor management; no growth as a professional; glorified data capturer
People are fake.Sheep like culture, everyone is constantly looking over their shoulders scared of their own skins- if you perform well, you a threat to someones job-underpaid, Noyone- not even management takes responsibility when things go wrong- instead they blame each other-Horrible training program- especially around peak times( i had a 2 week training program squashed into 2 days, because nobody could care less-they had their own workflow to get through-pathetic. mundane work that does not even come close to justifying your job title as an "analyst" in any shape or form. You deal with data and data management- and thats your life, everyday. Understanding one data management tool does not develop your ability to analyze and provide value to a financial firms investment decision- many tools are utilized, you dont get exposure to this- beware to all ye aspiring investment professionals. The people i spoke to that have been their longer then 2 years say that they are stuck- you cant apply anywhere else because all you know is Bloomberg"s proprietary software package!, nevertheless it is a good first job for a 1 or an internship- looks good on your resume- even if you get to pretend to call yourself an "analyst" far too many at Bloomberg
