When many of us hear the name Bloomberg, instantly images of the New York City mayor come to mind. The man who made New York City the safest big city in the nation, fighting terrorism for three terms after being elected just weeks after 9/11, and revitalizing neighborhoods from the South Bronx to Coney Island. However, that is just one slice of Michael Bloomberg’s career.

Since clutching his first briefcase on Wall Street in 1966, Bloomberg has been synonymous with business. And in 1981, he launched the startup that is known today as Bloomberg LP, a global finance, media and tech company. Now worth approximately $50 billion according to Forbes, the 75-year-old shows no signs of stopping when it comes to business, philanthropy and leadership. In fact, Bloomberg LP employees say he’s at his best.

Mike, as he prefers to be called, has just been named one of the 2017 Highest Rated CEOs according to employee reviews on Glassdoor. With a 95% CEO approval rating, Bloomberg has harnessed the power and passion of nearly 19,000 employees in 192 locations around the world. What’s his secret to success? An innovative (and politics-free) company culture, combined with some of the best opportunities that an organization can offer.
