Bloomberg Maternity Leave Comments

  • "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." - Lady anon312
  • "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." - Lady Munchkingo
  • "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." - Lady Capella
  • "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." - Lady CupofJoe
  • "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."" - Lady DD
  • "It is a unique culture that expects alot out of you. Great benefits including 18 weeks paid maternity leave and health insurance is 100% covered." - Lady maryland
  • "Great maternity leave and benefits. Long work days and little flexibility" - Lady Bella123
