"Diversity has recently become a major topic at the company and more women are promoted to leadership positions. However, there is still room for change and especially in some departments, older people are being let go. Also, some facilities only have unisex toilets."

"I tacked 8 weeks of NY State's Paid Family Leave Act onto my paid leave, provided by Bloomberg. I was only able to do so because I had my baby in 2017 and that policy was grandfathered in. From 2018 on, Bloomberg requires all unpaid leave and NYPFLA to run concurrently with the 18 weeks of paid leave that the company offers."

"On the one hand, Bloomberg has amazing parental leave, with 18 weeks paid for moms/primary caretakers (and generous paid leave provided for partners, as well). But returning back is a challenge. The mentality here is first in, last out, making it inherently difficult for parents to be perceived as true team players, regardless of their contributions or work ethic. Additionally, I've been on the receiving end of numerous comments that have indicated a lack of support or consideration for parental responsibilities."

"I have been openly discriminated against because of my gender. A male colleague in my department received a promotion even though he consistently received poor remarks on his work. I have worked at the company for over 4 years and although I get incredible feedback on my work and high marks on annual reviews, there has not been any promotion. And I had asked for/about it -- I have been very strategic and smart about working to advance myself at the company, but in general, most in management and above are white males."

"I've worked here for over 5 years and my experiences are positive. I have found that men and women are treated equally - work hard, and you'll be rewarded. You are expected to get your job done and put in a lot of energy, but if you're doing well they will accommodate your needs too. I've heard some stories of unflexible management but everyone I've worked with personally has been understanding and supportive, both of my career and my choices."

"I've worked here for 10 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles although we have recently made strides with more women in manager positions. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them and male managers don't actively seek out informal networking with women. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time. I think managers place a high emphasis on face-time and being in office at 7:30 AM and leaving at 6PM which as opposed to being results oriented and understanding that parents can and work remotely in the evenings after kids are in bed."

"I've worked here for 4 years and I do see a few women advancing in their careers but they clearly work twice as hard as the men in their same positions. I believe there are guidelines in place for fair treatment of women, so I don't think it's an issue of company policy. But day in day out, I feel there's an assumption made by the men in the company (especially white and older ones) that the women are there to assist them. For example, I've been asked to transcribe interviews for male reporters less experienced than me, do meeting minutes that male reporters were never asked to do and be the one to have difficult conversations with women colleagues. These aren't terrible tasks per se, but it goes to show how sexism remains prevalent in the workforce."

"This company has excellent benefits, especially when it comes to having children. It allows 2 months for partners, and 4.5 months for women who have a baby. That said, the culture at bloomberg is odd at best. It's very formal, secretive, and at times harsh. It definitely is not a place where creativity or a free-flow of ideas flourishes. It's more of a do your job, do it well and stay under the radar place."

"I could not have asked for a better experience at Bloomberg. I started as a temp in customer service, was converted to perm after a month, and was promoted after 3 months. A year later I was presented with two fantastic opportunities to join different teams within the company. I moved into event operations, taking on a role far beyond my skill set and comfort level, but my manager took a chance on me and let me shine. Bloomberg opened so many doors for me. I'm forever grateful for such a supportive environment that rewarded hard work. Also, the health and 401k benefits here are unparalleled. One of my colleagues who had 3 children was also permitted to have a flexible work arrangement where she had every other Friday off."

"Bloomberg's famous for its golden handcuffs: good pay, 18 weeks of paid maternity leave, free health/dental/vision for you and all of your dependents, free snacks, great 401k, and 20 vacation days for everyone. But the company culture permits aggression, intimidation, and disrespect that is difficult for even the most confident of women to deal with. There are vastly more men than women in leadership roles and limited opportunities for advancement. Bloomberg consistently loses its top performers, male or female. There are a tremendous amount of internal roadblocks to getting things done. You might hear this from more than one person about the company: "All the good ones go, but the best ones leave.""

"The infrastructure and benefits within the company are great. However, it is definitely run by the old guard and unless you have a dynamic manager gunning for you, you will not rise above the level you were hired at. Great training ground for young people and a good place to work and leave for older people with kids but if you are looking to grow your career you will most likely run in to a wall after 2-3 years."

"Bloomberg is awesome in policy but can be tricky to navigate in practice. The benefits, including health insurance, maternity leave, and other family-friendly perks, are great.. Flex time exists but can be tough to get, and your hours have a way of growing without bound if you don't keep a firm handle on things. In general - and this may be R&D specific, because women comprise about 20% of developers, typically the most junior ones - you have to push hard for what you want. But the boys' club effect is pretty mild and, while I'm usually the only woman in any meeting I attend, most people are able to treat me as an equal."

"Depending on your department and managers, it can be great. It has a reputation as and still is a boys' club. But the company is moving in the right direction and has tremendous resources behind it. Paid maternity leave is now 18 weeks. Plus you can take 4 unpaid. Healthcare is amazing and free. There are great resources to work from home and HR will work with you to set a flex schedule so that can be a regular part of your week. The hours are long. At least 9-hour days. But you are treated well, again depending on the department."

"Depending on your position flexible work arrangements may be available - it depends on your team and some roles don't have a history of allowing people to work flexibly."

"Been at this company for over five years. This is a great company for people who have families. 37.5 hour work weeks. Rarely have to work overtime. Guaranteed yearly increases. Probably the worst thing about the company is the maternity leave: three weeks paid. Other than that, it's been a good place to work. The work can get a little monotonous though. But that could just be my department."

"There is an old guard of people who have worked at the company for a very long time and they make it very difficult for new employees to penetrate the highest rank of the culture unless you are hired from the outside directly into a top role. The perception is that you have to be an aggressive part of an all-male, older inner circle in order to succeed at the very highest levels here. If you're just trying to advance to middle management, its possible and fine for women."

"Everyone is very smart and always innovating, which helps keep you on your toes and learning. To me, there was no work/life balance. It was only till later that they allowed work from home, and only for inclement weather."

"Not very flexible"
Anonymous Review Image
"There were a lot of minor projects that kept the job interesting, especially since your core job was to take calls all day. The projects gave employees an opportunity to be involved and to voice their ideas. Shifts were not really flexible and sometimes you had to work weekends or holidays. There were a lot of nice people but there was also favoritism in that department. It was hard to advance unless your team leader and manager were on your side."
