    Culture

  • 4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • It seemed great. All the people working at Bloomberg were extra friendly and nice. They all were super available to respond to our many many questions.

    Your Impressions

  • 5. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I enjoyed it a lot. I partook in the insight week online, so surely my extent was limited to how fun it can be to be sitting in front of a computer with 34 degrees Celsius outside. However, the format, the people from Bloomberg and the other insight week participant made it a memorable experience.

  • 8. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Bloomberg
  • Make sure you try to show them you are interested in the job and the company itself. When participating insight weeks or during the interview process shine bright, but don’t try to outshine others by being rude. Just be yourself and do your research about the company and I’m sure you will impress them no matter what.
