Bloomberg phone interview

Citibank WW lll
Aug 17, 2018 12 Comments

I have been at banks since 5 years. I have worked at GS, JP and now Citi. I Sometimes get frustrated with how slow they innovate and not a fan of old tech. I want to make a switch to a tech company this time, even a startup is okay. How does Bloomberg differ from a tech company?

I don’t want to make the same mistake choosing a bank again. Do tell abt your experience

    They gave me the find the median of two sorted lists which is considered somewhat hard in the on-site. Solve it in log n time.

      Tech also isn’t old. You can easily avoid the Fortran shit.

    Why not FANG ? From what I have heard Bloomberg won't be significantly different than banks. Totally agree that banks suck
