Can be somewhat of a "boys' club," depending on the team leader.

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."

I've worked here for 3 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. 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. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Your TL might be great, but above that management is roundly seen as ineffective. The lone woman is not the kind to look out for other women.

You have to be savvy. You have to have energy and crave change. There is great pay and great benefits, but it is run by all males at the very top. You start to see women in leadership the next level down from the CEOs direct reports, and for career building in middle management, women have no issues.

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.

This can be a very good place to work depending on your manager and your group. I've found it to be very supportive before and after maternity leave, in large part due to my managers within my group. I've also found the lactation resources (rooms) very good upon my return from leave.

This is an amazing company. People want each other to succeed and care about your career progression as much as you do. There are many opportunities but as with any extremely successful company, you have to work for it and compete against very talented people. It is how it should be.

Not a great place for working mothers or single mothers to work. No flexibility and too many male leaders whose wives are stay at home moms. They do not understand the needs and contributions of a working mother.

Working at BBG is amazing. There is so much flexibility and I believe everyone is treated fairly. There are an incredible amount of perks and I would recommend working at Bloomberg to anyone.

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.

    If you're looking to work in the financial or tech industries in New York City, Bloomberg is a good place to be. I'm not sure I'd recommend working in the financial or tech industries in New York City, though.
