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

    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 Management

    "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.
