Good company for stable employment
Bloomberg offers a variety of opportunities across data, sales and engineering. As a large private company and a market leader it offer good salaries (with great benefits), decent opportunities for progression (however, rarely particularly rapid one) and a friendly work environment. At the same time, it's slightly risk averse and has a large product and management legacy which are not changed easily, although Bloomberg has been introducing more new data, quant and API products recently.It will give good opportunities to get an understanding of the financial system as a whole as well as specialise in some products in a lot more depth. Sales/account management job can sometimes require long travel hours (albeit in very comfortable conditions) and be slightly repetitive at the junior level. Sales teams environment depends a lot on individual managers.

watch out for the backstabbers!!!
With very poor mgmt in place it was like the Wild west, Bloomberg takes your soul if you let it - they have their own weird processes - if you have an opinion and voice it you won't last long - they want robots!

A place to start your carreer and move on
Company offers plenty of opportunities for advancement especially for univeristy graduates throught the Analytics career path. After the initial "Wow!" effect wears off the place is like any other big company. The culture and dynamic depends on the department with Analytics, the biggest department in the company being extremely competitive and you should be prepared for micromanagement. Pros: > people of different backgrounds and interests resulting in communities from Women in technology to board games. You will find someone you get along with > plenty of benefits like pension, events, healthcare, nice office > good place to begin career in finance as there are plenty of resources available to develop your knowledge and collaboration with other teams allows you to develop an all-round awareness of finance Cons: > being a large company management is a mess where priorities can shift rapidly resulting in projects being abandoned, resources misallocated and staffing shortages > work can be extremely stressful whether due to sheer volume, micromanagement or expectations that are set too high to impress management up the food chain. There were cases of employees being sent to rehab as a result of burnout > your performance and value is determined based on various stats so be prepared to be a "cog in the machine"
