    Pros

    Generally speaking, the pay is slightly higher than industry average Expectations aren’t super high with output, so the work/life balance is solid

    Kontras

    A lot of people here including myself are seeking other employment. First, Google the Labor Department story if you aren’t familiar. This was a story written in bad faith that wouldn’t have made it into my college paper. The story also put the subject’s career at risk for no reason. Newsrooms put out bad stories sometimes. There’s no excuse. But it happens. This story which contained blatant lies took one month to... retract and senior leadership in the newsroom never acted like it was a problem. I never call for termination, but the EIC should be ashamed and resign. This story should’ve been retracted with an apology in less than 5 minutes. The reporter and editors should’ve been terminated on the spot. They have no business being here and most writers here know that. An organization’s values reflect on the writer. Bloomberg Law’s disregard for basic journalism ethics stains my career and I’m embarrassed at events in DC when people bring it up. It also hurts me with sources.

    Fire all senior leadership responsible for this story not being retracted earlier. Make the reporter stand in front of the company and verbally apologize.

    Ich habe bei Bloomberg Industry Group gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    -A pantry with free snacks, fruit, drinks, and a fancy espresso machine -More diverse than other corporate offices (but not in management, see cons) -Name recognition if you work on the BLAW/BTAX products in the legal industry -Good place to start if you want an alt-law career--but do not plan on staying here for an extended period of time if you don't want your career to basically be over

    Kontras

    -No one competent stays here long term. They know that the likelihood of getting promoted at a MARKET SALARY is nearly impossible and leave for better opportunities. This is basically the gateway to fed jobs for some law school grads/lawyers who are transitioning out of private practice. -Upper management has no understanding of the products its editors create and maintain. Therefore, their decisions in what... resources to provide and to what groups don't make sense. They will never compete with Westlaw and Lexis for this reason. -Some editorial groups are severely understaffed and management refuses to add positions. Not hiring for certain positions with no clear reason why, so most people are underpaid and working ten times harder while not being allowed to work OT and no support because they aren't hiring anyone. Also a reason why they will never compete with Westlaw or Lexis. -Wish washy when it comes to policies. Some employees are allowed to work remotely full time (from as close as 1-2 hours away or as far as many states away) and others must come into the office each day and aren't allowed to work remotely at all (and not for any good reason like they need to be in the office to do their job). As a legal tech company promoting AI, etc. it's really odd that they would step back from offering flexible work options for employees when the technology is there and there isn't a business reason for it. Some remote employees do a significant less amount of work and clearly are just baggage but unclear why they don't just get rid of those instead of not giving the incentive of flex work to hard working employees. -Promotions are happening more but they are for peanuts. You get "promoted" and the difference in salary bump is laughable. Not competitive. More than nonprofit sector, but not in competition with most other jobs in the area. -If you are young and work hard, you will be making less money than someone who has been there a long time and does nothing and yet, no one has ever written them up or fired them. Not sure if that has to do with managers being afraid of the union (which to be honest is not very strong/has very low membership so don't think that is it) or if maybe they just are too lazy to write up an employee and do not want to bother. -It's common to see a new manager making less money than their employees that are reporting to them which I haven't seen in any other company before. -Upper management has a good amount of women but that is it as far as diversity goes. Just take a look at the exec. page with photos. -There are a lot of very very incompetent/lazy managers. New managers are a lot more enthusiastic/competent. But there still remains managers that they just couldn't fire I guess in the last round of "reorgs" in Oct. but that really should have been. There are managers who barely show up at the office, don't know what their employees are working on, or just flat out don't understand the subject matter their own employees are covering. There are still some non-JD managers managing a legal content group....not sure how that works?

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Bloomberg Industry Group (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Solid compensation and benefits. There are a lot of newsroom employees for the amount of news that gets produced, so unless you're a reporter you're probably not all that busy. A union shop, which is always welcome. Plenty of good places to eat near the office. Every once in a while, A story that falls within a reporter's beat is interesting enough to get some attention outside of BNA's very specific clientele.

    Kontras

    The biggest overall con would be that many of the newsroom employees take their job and their dedication to journalism *very* seriously, but many of them aren't all that good at it: reporters who get beat to stories by other outlets, copy editors who miss typos, and senior editors unable to help guide and shape a story. That's because BNA reports the driest, dullest news imaginable, and no serious journalist in... their right mind would want to work there (the ones that do tend to move on, not up). But the jobs pay well, and since many of the reporters and editors have law degrees, doing whatever it is they do there all day is an easier way to pay down those loans than grinding it out as a lawyer. The parent company brought in new leadership under the guise of improving the news product, but mostly all they did was fire people and do everything in their power to weaken the union (things like moving guild editorial staff into made up "management" roles to lower union membership). If the new senior leaders have actually improved the product, it doesn't show. Mostly, it's senior staff pulled over from Bloomberg LP who were happy to take a promotion to do less work. If a reporter finds a story that might be more interesting than normal, those senior editors will flag it and attach themselves to it and (somehow) spend hours or even days "working on" the lede for a story that any other modern news outlet would have had reported, written, edited and published in less than a day. The headline might be a little snappier, though, so they have that going for them. If you were to look at what this newsroom puts out on a weekly basis, you would have a hard time figuring out why so many people work there. Just layer after layer after layer of editorial management for desks that might produce one or two stories per day, on average. Working there doesn't make figuring it out any easier.

    Hire senior editors who got their start in journalism no earlier than the H.W. Bush administration.

    The company has wonderful perks (i.e. work from home, 401k package, salary, etc) and as long as you perform and hit your numbers, they relatively leave you alone.

    They company is going through some structural changes and this is starting to impact the pros I have listed above. TBD if it is for the better, but I have to say that I don't see it going that way.

    Pros

    All workplace opinions are subjective. Some people vent about personal issues and others sound like schills twirling pom-poms. The truth, as usual, is somewhere in between. Pros: Many problems noted by other reviewers are not really going to affect some people. If this is one of your first real jobs, it’s a good enough place to start. You’ll gain enough experience to get oriented about the wonderful world of... white-collar work. There are enough perks to keep you incentivized, plus opportunities through employee resource groups to get to know other employees and use other skills. The senior employees like to have less experienced colleagues with whom to play boss, and management will likely not view you as a threat so will encourage you to shine. Location is decent and Metro accessible.

    Kontras

    No investment in training. There do appear to be available funds for continuing education programs, conference attendance, professional organizational membership, etc., but they're not offered on a universal basis. A willful mystery that can be inquired about, but never responded to. There is still a D+I struggle within pockets of the company. This is not unusual as this endeavor often creates a backlash effect.... The majority subconsciously doubles down on control in response. It’s a very difficult balance to achieve – maintaining status quo while embracing something new. However, it is definitely not solved by attitudes of “There...We moved one of “them” up a level. Applaud our munificence.” Ageism is real and will affect everyone eventually. If you suspect your intelligence is being insulted, your role narrowed, and your input ignored, it’s likely because it is. But the people who are the most upset about this tend to be the ones complaining “all this technology is too much, too many things to learn, back in my day we used to....etc., etc.”; it’s sufficient to leave this as a statement of fact rather than a Con.

    To management? Keep the beta males and overeducated housewives that you obviously prefer. Dump the perceived threats and dead weight that you obviously loathe. (Handle this managing out carefully as you have already tripped a few EEOC wires.) Waiting for retirees is futile, and turning the environment a shade under hostile is a bad idea. Prepare sweetheart buyout packages (with career assistance for those still in... the game but you have no idea what to do with) to encourage next steps. Don't worry about the union - it knows what side it's bread is buttered. Is there a risk of losing true talent in the process? Maybe, but it's pretty clear that isn't a priority at this point.

    Pros

    Fabulous benefits (really incredible medical) and company cares about inclusion in all areas and has tons of opportunities to volunteer in the community. The Employee Resource Groups are active and a great way to meet people. I like my job and my manager. Hope I can grow my career here.

    Kontras

    The Guild (Union) is worthless and sends out emails telling us how terrible the company is but that is all they do. There is nothing to back up their statements. And I imagine management is unwilling to work with a union that only uses negative publicity to communicate. Want the company to grow so there are more opportunities for promotion. Not all managers are as good as mine. Company is training managers, but... they need to hold accountable if not doing a good job.

    Pros

    There's a really nice picnic every year that probably costs seven figures to host. All the low-cost, bulk purchase candy and snacks from Sysco you care to enjoy. Although benefits have been undermined with higher health care premiums, co-pays, and elimination of the pension plan, overall benefits are above market. People work hard, but that's because the current CEO has said if you want to get ahead you... need to be the first person at your desk in the morning and the last to leave at night. Yes, he really said that.

    All the reviews about Bloomberg BNA being the red-headed stepchild of Bloomberg LP are true. This review is through the lens of working in the news room. There are three tribal factions in the news department: BBNA (three brands in Arlington); BGOV (BBNA brand in downtown DC); and Bloomberg News (parent company). All three of them despise and distrust each other and their managers are constantly at war, both... openly and sub rosa. While some may act nicely when you speak to them, you will quickly find a dagger in your back within seconds of turning away from what you thought was a friendly conversation -- even with longtime, trusted colleagues. Top management seems to be OK with it, because despite saying there is "one newsroom," plans are drawn up in secret for various re-orgs/power grabs and everyone lives in constant fear of what changes are coming next. Then changes come but are not explained to the employees who are affected, and they are afraid to ask about the reasoning. The resulting culture of fear is exactly how the parent company runs and what they are trying to replicate at BBNA. All senior leadership is from the parent company in New York. Nobody, and I mean nobody, will ever rise through the ranks of BBNA to be a top-level leader. The ones that had climbed the ladder were pushed aside in a massive re-org last year, during which 75 employees were laid off. Another 30 have been laid off so far this year. You can only ascend so far if you are not originally a Bloomberg LP hire. It's a cutthroat atmosphere, and that seems to be what the billionaire owner wants. The few who do rise to 2nd-tier management mostly have climbed on the corpses of their former colleagues to rise to power. The new leadership struggles to understand what the market wants and how to get it to them, so they repeat the cult-like mantras of the parent company even when they don't apply. Rather than focus on in-depth legal and government reporting that is BBNA's strength, reporters and editors are encouraged to chase clickbait stories to get hits for the parent company's Terminal. Time-wasting tangential projects that please the senior leadership for being buzzworthy win internal praise, but metrics show they have no core value whatsoever. Employees hired prior to 2010 had a pension plan, but the weak and myopic union gave it away in collective bargaining. Does a few million dollars in pension costs concern an owner worth $30 billion? Or is it part of a plan to encourage turnover and sweep away old employees? And I use the term "old" in every sense of the word, because age and experience are not valued here. If you're 24 you'll be promised a career plan that will send you around the world and lead to you running the newsroom one day, but if you're of an age that's federally protected by discrimination laws and have not spent your entire career at the parent company they will just squeeze your pay, and try to make you more and more miserable until you get fed up and leave on your own. The disparate treatment exacerbates the divide between early and later career employees discussed in many other reviews here. And, yes, the open floor plan is just as dehumanizing as you think it is.

    Rat an das Management

    Shoot straight with the workforce. Stop the secret meetings in glass conference rooms. If big changes are coming, just pull the band-aid off quickly. You are bleeding competent employees because of the culture of fear you encourage by utter lack of any kind of communication whatsoever. Corral your mid-level managers and get them all working together instead of encouraging them to stab each other in the back day... after day. Trust your employees to give subscribers what they need, and stop encouraging Terminal clickbait and far-fetched side projects that don't pay the bills.
