I received offers from Slack Bloomberg and Microsoft for Summer 2020 internship. Aiming for a FT return offer and wondering which would be a better career move.

  • Bloomberg infi
    Such polls can be misleading just due to the fact there are probably 20 times more msft employees on blind compared to say Bloomberg!

      And people in both the valley and NY will have heard of Slack but valley people and even some NY people unlikely to have heard of Bloomberg.

      I guess NYC people should probably know Bloomberg surely I believe! But, I agree with your observation in general.

    • Bloomberg aJwI87
      The company is literally named after the three-term mayor of NYC. If people haven't heard of the company, they should be thrown out of the city.

      Anyways, Bloomberg can be thought of as the NYC Microsoft. Largest employer in the city as well as similar pay and WLB. Tons of lifers.

      Many people think of it as a media company not a financial data company. Also many new grads were 15 and not in NY when he was mayor

      I'm talking about people living in NYC. I find it hard to believe that anyone living in NYC does not know about the company.

      Also, new grads know Bloomberg very well; the company has been massively promoting itself the past few years. The only people I can think of who might not be knowing much about the company are probably people who joined the industry like 7+ years ago.

    Bloomberg pays all cash and has great WLB. Voted MSFT for the name though. depends what you’re looking for and what matters to you

    Slack has lost almost 50% of it's value since IPO. Office suite is shipping with products that are a direct competition to Slack. Surprised at the poll results.

    Hard to say without knowing what you’ll be doing in those companies. Do you have a background for each team?

    I'm pretty sure everyone in NY has year of Bloomberg. And most places.

    I heard Slack pays a lot. Doing an internship there would be a good way to get a foot in the door.

    MSFT. Slack might not survive, sadly
