    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good group of colleagues on the team made the work exciting at many times. Also good management inspiring it's employees to achieve above and beyond.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy of processes can slow a number of tasks from being completed immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An improvement to the engagement and joy of coming in to work would be very useful. Incorporating a progressive fun-filled software culture similar to the industry leaders will retain employees and furthermore attract software engineers to the financial tech world.

    Pros

    large, respected company and some great opportunities to travel, interact with different people and help clients

    Cons

    know they are the best in the industry and under pay. targets are hard to reach and banner performance does not lead to banner year compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay people more than the minimum to keep them in their seat and you will have their loyalty and commitment for life. that will lead to dramatic results.
