    Good comp (not FAANG level). good working environment.

    Some of the tech leaves something to be desired. (Comdb2, BAS, Terminal).

    No stock (cause Mike own’s most of it)

    Lots of learning opportunities through training and meetups.

    General desire to move some of tech forward from the top, even if individual departments may be slow in Adoption.

    Much better then the last company I worked for (smaller company in trading environment).

      Base salary and bonus is equal or better than FANG. The only missing piece is RSU, which, overall, puts BB TC behind by about ~$50k a year.

      Only 50k behind? How much does Bloomberg pay SDE2 and SDE3s?

      But what about career growth? I heard NJ office full of older ppl with family and may not good for young?

    I’m also considering. Would join BBG open a door to finance world? I’m always worried about the potential career crisis when SDE gets old (though I’m still young). Maybe finance is safer field for older guys because it requires domain knowledge.

      Finance jobs are being decimated, year in year out, due to technology. Stick with tech.

      And no working at BBG isn’t going to lead a career in Banking, trading or Money Management. It may lead to a career in adminining systems at Financial Organization.

    Ex bbg and culture for me was great. Everyone is super friendly and pretty happy to go to work. It's not the most exciting place but many stay for life

    Work life balance is among the best out there

    Salary is decent. Work culture is pretty good. Lots of good teams and great projects in progress. Easy to switch around teams if you land up on a bad one.

    The ex-Bloomberg folks I know all basically say "meh" when I ask them about the company... but might be sampling bias

      Here for TC

      It is meh. People stay for one of good TC despite low expectations, they happen to be on one of the rare good teams with challenging but not overly demanding work, or because they can’t leave for immigration or poor interview performance reasons.

    Environment like most places is highly department dependent. Some areas have ridiculously high rates of turnover for instance which is obviously telling.
