What is your position at Bloomberg and how long have you been working there?

I interned within a Global Data Syndicated Loans Team for 10 weeks.


At Bloomberg what would a normal day consist of?

I was assigned a variety of duties primarily involving data acquisition, due-diligence and research as my core tasks. We also received training on the Bloomberg terminal on a daily basis and we were allowed to undertake any additional projects (which I found quite rewarding).


Do your hours differ from day to day?

The hours are generally 8am-6pm but on most days you either come in a little bit earlier or stay a bit later so it very much depends on the individual day and tasks at hand.


What is the favourite part of your role?

I loved being able to speak to different people from all over the world on a daily basis and being able to take ownership of new projects regularly.


What do you think of the office/working environment at Bloomberg?

It was the best working environment I have ever seen! Every building has aquariums and a communal area with lots of free snacks

 

If you could change any part of your job role what would you do?

The great thing about Bloomberg is if you don’t like a part of your job, you can quite easily adapt your role in the long term to suit your needs so you are always able to focus your role on areas you think you will thrive on.


What would somebody not working at Bloomberg probably not know about the company, which is interesting?

You could quite easily find yourself next too some very important people within the company without even realizing it, something that is pretty rare in such big companies.


What is the most challenging part of your job?

The role is very demanding and is changing on a daily basis; you have to be very organised and quick so it is very important to be able to organise your workflow efficiently to ensure that you don’t get caught behind.

 

Where else did you apply?

Factset and Reuters. They offer a similar type of role to what Bloomberg offers.

 

How would you describe working life at Bloomberg in 3 words?

Unconventional… Fun… Inspiring.
