BlackRock is a good, stable employer, but not extraordinary.

Pros

Vacation time and other benefits are above average, strong career growth opportunities overall, promotion from within is encouraged, work-life balance is better than industry standard.

Cons

Limited professional opportunities outside of major sites (ie -NYC, London, San Francisco), bonuses are far less generous than what was advertised by HR recruiters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees at BlackRock as well as Investors are treated. Encourage recognition for jobs well done, as praise can be limited.

    Skewed outlook from management, poor morale, does not care about retention of employees.

    Pros

    Benefits and salaries - best in the industry

    Cons

    Poor management who told employees all the time we were lucky to be there and we were replacable. No fairness in promotions at all, always about kissing-up than job performance, no growth opportunities, no support from management at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads on straight. You employ top talent, but cannot retain them at all. Many people jump ship when other companies are hiring because you do not care about your employees at all.
