Job Interview Bloomberg LP

5.0 of 5 stars

July 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Most of people are very openminded and helpful. Collaborative culture is the key.

Downers

Not found so much downers, maybe too frenetic in some occasions.

Advice to Candidates

Be yourself, always asked questions like Why Bloomberg, what improvements to the terminal, portfolio composition. Do research about Bloomberg and its products in preparation for the interviews.

Bloomberg BNA

3.0 of 5 stars

September 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Friendly, relaxed environment
Excellent benefits
Opportunities to telework
Managers encourage growth

Downers

Compensation
Not rationale to pay scale from department to department - depends on their budget

Advice to Candidates

You must be able to manage your own workload and time. Someone who is internally driven will likely do much better at this company than someone who needs constant management. There doesn't seem like much opportunity for growth in this company in some departments. Bloomberg also needs to be more competitive with their pay.

Task masters. No work from home. No room for growth for indians.

2.0 of 5 stars

November 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Colorful offices. Free food.
Great summer party (basically free food to make you work more)

Downers

There is a glass ceiling for indians.
If you are a programmer, you will find it very hard to find a job after working here.
I used to get support calls when my kid was in an ICU and had to report to work a week after my kids were born.
Employees have to use their vacation time for doctor's appointments.
All management positions are occupied by the whites.

Working here is a career dampener and is looked down upon at other places.

Advice to Candidates

If you are working in technology, do not go here.
The 24 X 7 support, relentless deadlines and excessive pressure can wreck havoc on your personal life.

Strong Corporate Culture

5.0 of 5 stars

October 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Private Company allows for swift market changes and dynamic environment
Free drinks & snacks, opening and modern offices which makes a very pleasant work environment
lots of training and grow potential to change position or move to a different country

Downers

If you don't like the culture or are the right fit, you're out there very quickly
some middle managers are very young and inexperienced

Advice to Candidates

Great start to get an overview of financial markets especially in sales & trading

Watching the internal battles grow

3.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Still dynamic vibrant company with opportunities abound. Bloomberg continues to crank out new terminal based features, as well as refining existing ones.

Downers

Politics and backstabbing at all time high now that Mike has come back. People with 4 digit UUIDs (bloomberg employee numbers) are lining up to talk to Mike and express their frustrations and hold sway. Meanwhile people who were senior hires for some reason wonder why the world has gone upside down. The truth: The culture is toxic and petty. Hence the reason Dan D left as well as many other great professionals.

Advice to Candidates

Make of it what you will, Bloomberg will never change. The goal of this company is to continue selling terminals. But in a sense it's the purest definition of insanity. Keep trying the same things and hoping for different results. Unfortunately, the people left holding the bag are the existing lifers and their personal flunkies. Not a great place to spend your years.

Fannie Mae's new tag line “To be America’s most valued housing partner” Oh come

March 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Salary good with some good benefits thrown in hear and there

Downers

Appraisal Review requires Hours worked for production, Collateral underwriter AKA: CU is a Glorified AVM developed by an appraiser in the DC/VA area that believes adjustments are derived basically on housing in his (neck of the woods) and within the program ** see magnifying glass near the subject GLA and site size adjustments which will show you the peer average adjustments and then the model or CU’s adjustments which on average range from 20-60% higher than the OA or the peers. Go figure.. Fannie Credit Policy is changing so fast you can hardly blink, one moment we were told to write a moderate defect for example, (Failure to adjust the comparable sales for GLA, parcel size, room count, sales or financing, etc.) Per Credit Policy; Do not cite a defect if analysis determines that the deficiency does not negatively impact the appraised value. But wait Credit Policy says if it does impact the value, was the MTC aka Minimum Collateral Threshold supported? So now you take the loan amount and divide that by the maximum allowable LTV and now we get a value much lower that is acceptable by Fanny standards. But if that home owner goes to sell, say in 6 months and says to the Realtor my house is worth this much $$$$ and the realtor says No, it’s worth this much $$$, the home owner is already underwater!

Advice to Candidates

Don't! Fannie laying off and heading to DC.
Looking in DC? OK because that’s all they , Tim Mayopoulos talks about, every day on the computer screen, look at our new digs, look what we are going to build, look at the plans. We are going to be something! Yeah you’re something alright. Your cutting jobs from REAL Appraisers and going to Automated software that you think will be the answer to the US housing market? You want to be Americas housing partner? You’re taking it down, not up with Integrity! Is what you’re doing
