Bloomberg Prestige

New VCCu35
Nov 15, 2019 22 Comments

I am a new grad who got an offer from Bloomberg.
148. base
25k sign on
20. bonus

It sounds like a great offer but Im just curious how Bloomberg is viewed in the industry comapred to Apple (where i have an offer)

Does one over the other make a difference on my resume? My main concern is Bloomberg doesn’t have levels and Apple is offering ICT3

Is switching from Bloomberg to lets say Google harder than Apple to Google?

    Apple is a tech company, Bloomberg is not.
    Forget prestige, learning at Apple will be higher than Bloomberg.

      @horsefly I am not implying Bloomberg is not good place for career, I am saying between Apple and Bloomberg, Apple gives more opportunity to learn and grow than Bloomberg.
      If someone thinks Bloomberg > Apple then I have nothing to argue!
      OP has a choice here, OP is not asking Bloomberg review, OP is asking Bloomberg vs Apple!

      That's fair. I would go the one with higher TC. And to all young people I have to say: don't stop preparing for interviews. Loyalty doesn't pay.

    I see people moving to Google from gagagugu companies like so unknown I don't even know what they do. If your resume is noticed and you get interview you have the same chance as anyone else

    Congrats on the offer! Funny you mention this because one of my closest friends started off at Bloomberg then got hired away at Google.

  • Man all these CS career related forums are starting to look like wallstreetoasis. I can't wait for people here to unironically chase after jobs at Albertsons because they hire fewer folks and is therefore more prestigious a la finance idiots chasing after internships at Deutsche Bank

      It is about TC and potential earnings in the future..

    Bloomberg is ok. Of all the meh companies they are pretty good but a clear otherwise step down from most tech firms

    Bloomberg is good. A lot of good companies outside of the Bay. It’s just Blind is too focused in the Bay.

      Is this a normal Bloomberg offer for 2020? Did you have serious C++ skills or is this how far Bloomberg has bumped up the offer from last year?
