Once great (BGI) culture has been ruined by micromanagement, poor process, dollar-focus, etc.

I worked at BlackRock

Pros

Great pay and benefits; lots of smart people; interesting + global business; fast pace;

Cons

BlackRock is essentially a small firm that bought it's way to being big and missed many lessons along the way -- like how to develop senior and middle management and gain scale by leveraging people and building strong process. Lots of chaos and shifting priorities being micromanaged by a few people at / near the top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of some of the old guard; bring in / promote some fresh blood to the top; scale up processes; lose the "not invented here" syndrome.
