    I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company pays well but large swings have been experienced over the past few years. The new building in SF is a nice place to work in.

    Cons

    Lots of turn over, lack of direction, lots of pressure about sales revenue, too many people worried about face time instead of quality time.

    I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a wide range of growth opportunity across BlackRock business units and geographic locations. The positive side to being with a large corporation is that there is always a part of the business that is doing well, therefore there is a sense of stability.

    Cons

    The hours expected for the amount of pay is significantly skewed. Management is not concerned with turnover or retaining quality talent and would rather keep salaries below market than do what it takes to retain the talent.

    Advice to Management

    pay people what they are worth to sacrifice future turnover.
