Bloomberg NYC

TC = 142k + 18k + 10k(relocation) - New Grad

I am planning to accept an offer to join Bloomberg in NYC.
This will be my first time living on the east coast, and I have a few questions about NYC in general and about Bloomberg.

1. Bloomberg employees - After the initial 3 month "bootcamp" - we get to choose a team to join. What teams do you recommend that I stay away from?

2. How should I prepare for this "bootcamp"? Apparently, the better you do - more likely to get the team of your choice. How do I stand out?

3. Planning to get a studio in Manhattan (upper east side/upper west side). Is 2200 to 2400 a reasonable budget?

4. Eventually, I would like to move onto Google/FB etc, does having Bloomberg on my resume have any value?

    You forgot in TC to include your soul.

    It will depend on what you work on at Bloomberg and the needs of the role you apply for at G/FB. I’ve seen hires from diverse backgrounds (eg. finance, startups, fang, universities, etc)

    Ask for Signon/joining bonus... You can get 40-50k there.

      Bloomberg has a policy where you have to return the sign on if you leave within 2 years.
      Not sure I would want that :\

      Yes but you return pro rated value. And mostly you leave in less than a year.

      I have a full time offer from SAP, and ongoing interview process at Amazon.
      Not keen on either.

    In terms of apartment that sounds about right but expect to pay more and get less. Don’t bring a lot of stuff with you.

    I don't think you can really prepare for the training (no one calls it bootcamp) . There's so much stuff in it. Either you're good, or you're not. Just work hard.

    The team choice thing is probably more political than anything. You just might end up going to the teams that need the best people, regardless of your preference. You can always move though after a year.

    Studio is about 2k or so. 2.4k for something nicer for sure.

    Bloomberg is reputable enough to have on your resume yes.

    Studio on UES can be closer to 2k if you're on 2nd or 3rd Ave

    Not that it's hard to switch after given the current market, Why not directly go to fang?
