    I worked at BlackRock

    Pros

    BlackRock's reputation is one that is known to employ talented workers

    Cons

    BlackRock is no longer the company that respects its employees and strives for a work/life balance. It is all about the bottom line - no loyalty... no humanity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to return to the BlackRock roots. Look at employees as people. Reward hard work and loyalty. Don't just look at the bottom line. The better you treat your employees - the better the work product will be.

    I have been working at BlackRock

    Pros

    I enjoy my job because of the people i work with. We all work hard, take price in our work and want the company to succeed.

    Cons

    Employees in departments that don't bring in clients/accounts are not appreciated. We haven't been receiving raises, and our bonuses have been going down. My dept is expected to do more with less personnel than 2 years ago, but we're being paid less. I'm tired of hearing that I should "just be happy to have a job". I suspect that the money the company is saving by cutting my co-workers is going to the fat cats at the top.
