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.

    Maybe. 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.

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.

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.
