My experience with Bloomberg in NY was great. You get provided housing in full ($2000 USD/month value) in Manhattan (30 minute walk, 10 minute subway), along with a $2000 USD lump sum pay for relocation. The internship program itself comes with tons of events including weekly tech talks, picnic (they rent an island), data centre tour and hackathons (overnight, 16 hr overtime) and algorithm contests. Of course, you get access to Bloomberg’s pantry, unlimited museum pass and other perks like breakfast and dinner. The building is fantastic, especially the views of uptown in Lex and downtown view in Park. Work-wise the projects were very interesting, you get to pick what you’re interested in and they try their best to do something you love.… Show More

Interns all got 2 flexible vacation days per month. I used them to take a bunch of 3-4 day weekend trips, visiting different countries in Europe.

Worked in 2017 after previously working at the New York office. Company culture was consistent. I felt that the projects were meaningful and enjoyed working on my team. London did not have as many intern events as NYC, though there isn't as much of an intern program in London so this is to be expected. Having 8 vacation days was nice and allowed me to take extended trips and long weekends.

* Amazing team. My manager did bi-weekly one-on-ones where he asked me for feedback, mentored me on leadership, helped me solve problems related to my work, and pushed me to grow as an engineer. My mentor was really supportive as well and was always willing to help me. * Great social life. Team went after work weekly, plus we did lunch together every day. * Project was perfectly scoped for 4 months and interesting. Got to see it deployed & used before I left. * Annoying restrictions on doing things with the Bloomberg platform because I was an intern (like deploying my code) * This is Bloomberg so lots of very business-y meetings that are long and ... business-y. * Project was planned/designed before I started my internship, so that left… Show More

I worked on one of Bloomberg's ML teams during summer 2015; the work itself was challenging, and I got to work on and learn about infrastructure/data science at a big-data scale. My mentor and team were very available and knowledgable, and were happy to answer questions when I needed help. New York is a blast! They provide corp-housing, which is a huge plus in terms of bonding with other interns and exploring Manhattan.

I interned here during the Winter of 2014 and had myself a pretty good time. Work: The project I was put on was to create a tool to compare how effective our trade pricing algorithms were. Overall, I thought the project was dry and not all that challenging. The project I was put on was purely done in C++, using primarily Bloomberg specific libraries and tools, so it wasn't exactly exciting either. What made work fun though was a great team, a fun group of alumni, and the crazy interns that I got to live with. The city: New York City has a certain charm on it, and it hooked me in. Getting around the city is incredibly easy and it's very happening. From great shows to even greater food, there's always something new.

Salary was actually $43 USD. I was given a full fledged project to work on -- so a large part of my good experience was my team and the project they gave me. Other than that summer internships are the best given that they hire 200+ interns from all across the US so there are more people to meet. Great experience overall.

Honestly, it wasn't the most exciting work. They did offer a one time relocation stipend to help with moving.

Worked on Google Research doing machine learning on my own project. Learned a ton and the team was really smart, I was playing catch-up the whole term. Culture is great, so even though I was the youngest person in the room by about 25 years we all go along great and imo Google does literally everything to make working there perfect. I'd highly recommend joining a club, as bjj during lunch was a lot of fun. I think the well-known perks are overrated (food, laundry) and the biggest perk is the communities inside Google that are super friendly and inviting. Didn't have that many intern events but I was also not there in the summer, so go in the summer if you can!

Interned while this was still at the old office location in the Tannery. The facilities back then were great, so I'm sure the new office is amazing. This was my first taste at the "tech life" i.e. free food, and I'm pretty sure I gained at least 5 lbs by the end. In addition to salary, you get a housing and transportation stipend. As for work, the project I was on ended up being high priority for launch in that quarter, and so it was a great experience to work with a bunch of other engineers on the team and to launch it to real users in the end. Everybody is super smart and super friendly - a great internship experience overall.

Interned during the summer of 2017. I was on the Google Help/Feedback mobile team (iOS) and had two semi-independent projects throughout my term, both of them fully launched! I also got to do a large amount of backend development despite being hired as an iOS developer. The office culture was very laid back, and my host/team was very helpful during the entire internship. Not included in the salary is a $9000 relocation bonus at the start of the internship.
