    My experience deals with a very difficult merge to BGI and with interfering non-business personal views of management.

    I worked at BlackRock

    Pros

    Potential growth both horizontally and vertically within the organization; learning opportunities of different levels of the portfolio management profession (i.e., technical skills, business skills, management skills...)

    Cons

    Compensation structure divides groups; political and religious personal views of life of managers affect daily work; some managers look only at a very short term objectives penalizing BlackRock and BGI integration by keeping into existence inefficient codes and systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "One BlackRock" in "legacy BGI groups" in San Francisco is "one hundred black rocks". Some fixed income groups hide themselves behind barriers, which are the result of the historical complexity of codes and systems. They need a big change.

    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.
