"Got to work on an open source project. You either get a stipend or you get housing. Free dinner at 8PM, and they pay 1.5x for overtime. Your badge gets you into basically any museum (and zoos on some days) in the city."

"Typical financial corporate environment, but definitely a lot better than Wall St. Pretty office, good location, and nice perks. Job quality/responsibilities are completely team dependent, and you're matched based on your resume. My manager/mentor was great and I got to do varied work: systems, client-server dev, UI stuff, research. Some of the code is old, kludgey, and legacy, but someone is always able to explain it. Don't be afraid to ask people! The corporate hierarchy is very transparent."

"The work you get can really vary depending on the team. Bloomberg is a huge company dealing with news, data, pricing and analytics, etc so there'll be something for everyone. Sometimes the lack of documentation can be frustrating but everything is super transparent so you can always lookup who designed component X and message them about it. PS. you get to meet celebs in the office"

"Pros: Experience might vary slightly by team but in general all the co-ops seemed very satisfied by the work. Most managers know UW students and will give interesting/challenging projects. The teams are generally very friendly. Cons: Nearly no documentation. Work that involves more than one team/department can be hard because resources are scarce. Pretty much everything is proprietary and many systems are very old. (Note: Pay is in USD, 33/hour base + 3 for each term returning to Bloomberg)"
