When embarking on your professional life, there’s a lot to consider: especially what kind of company you want to work for. Here at Bloomberg, we’re proud to be an innovative, collaborative place to work – a place where you can add value, make a difference, and forge your own path. Below, our pro tips for starting (and advancing) your career at Bloomberg.
Embrace the unique org structure
No one here needs an open-door policy for his or her office, because no one here has an office. We sit in open bullpens, shoulder-to-shoulder. We are measured by our contributions, not by our titles. Even our conference rooms have glass walls. And, we love to share ideas over a free snack or coffee in our well-stocked pantries.
Volunteer for a cause you care about
“Many Bloomberg employees don’t limit themselves to one day a year to give back to the community; many sign up to volunteer for the same organizations week after week, often maxing out spots available and effectively becoming part of the communities they serve. This commitment to service is part of what makes working at Bloomberg so special, and I’m so proud to be part of a company that is committed to bettering the city it calls home.” – Ramya Prabhakar, Bloomberg Philanthropies Intern
Be part of an inclusive environment
“It continues to be important for me to know that a core part of Bloomberg’s policies is a commitment to a work place free of discrimination and harassment on the basis of many factors, but particularly gender expression. This meant that when I was ready, I knew I could come to work as my true self and I didn’t need to seek anyone else’s permission or approval.” – CB Bailey, developer, Bloomberg Application Services team in London
Help build a sustainable future
“We walk the walk. We have LEED-certified offices on 6 continents and our new European HQ office in London is the most sustainable office building in the world based on BREEAM standards. We’re proud of that. And at the same time, we’ve saved $100 million in operating costs.” – Curtis Ravenel, Global Head, Sustainable Business and Finance
Build the future of tech
“If you have drive, then you can make a big impact at Bloomberg, especially because we back the world markets in a dependable, and dependably accurate way. Our work has real world ramifications — if we fail to make a trade, or send out inaccurate pricing info, it’s a big deal and our clients are paying attention. Our challenge as a tech company is to provide a seamless and completely reliable service to our clients at a massive scale.” – Evan Young, Deployment team, Engineering
