Pros

Lots of change means lots of opportunity for career growth.

Cons

Integrating merger targets takes lots of time away from client-focused activities. Some people managers are better than others.

    Hardworking people, high client service, but a churn and burn environment w/ decreasing benefits. Very understaffed.

    I have been working at BlackRock

    Pros

    -Hard working smart people at the ground level
    -Comradery with teammates strong. Feel like most people have one another's backs
    -Great place to learn in first year or two after school. But then learning curve dramatically decreases.
    - Client service driven. Ethical.
    -Nice well kept building

    Cons

    -No raises in 3 years even though company is growing and in solid financial shape. When you break out comp by total hours worked, its a sad number.
    -Bonuses and retirement contributions cut despite everyone working longer and longer hours. "More with less, more with less" is the mantra. People getting cynical.
    -Can't even get replacement jobs approved. Aggressively adding more accounts without enough people to support the business. Late nights and weekends expected from everyone with increasing pressure to put in even more hours. Very stressful to balance personal and work life. Some of the teams have kids coming in at 6:30 am, work 12-15 hours and mandatory weekend work too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a lot more people or stop committing currently fried employees to more work.

    It was great in BGI days but dusts haven't settled yet after the merge, overall it's ok.

    Pros

    Industry dominant position. Various business lines for career growth and professional development. Nice people to work with in San Francisco office.

    Cons

    A huge and complicated organization for an employee to navigate through. Many levels in the organization structure that may confuse people.

    No opinion of CEO
