    Zombieland. Exhausting hours, pressure to never take time off, dead end boring jobs. Need to hire MANY more people.

    Pros

    Its good for the resume if you don't stay too long.
    Clients always first
    Teammates are great, and some of the supervisors are decent people

    Cons

    They will suck every last bit of life, health, and mental energy from you. And then tell you that you're so lucky to work at BlackRpck. And not give you raises or anywhere near the bonuses you were promised when hired. Break out your salary by number of hours worked and you might be better off in retail.
    No respect for life outside of work. Extreme pressure to never have a single sick day. Call you on vacation days. Forced to stay in job for 3 years before transferring to another role - jobs starting at 6:30 am and every single solitary Sunday. Not how it was explained at time of hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE MORE PEOPLE. And then hire some more. Focus on internal mobility, and not just the Operations jobs in Delaware.

    I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, decent product line up but that has changed with proliferation and high fees.

    Cons

    Smart people under-utilized because of politics and nonsense. If you are a self-promoter and do not mind constantly telling everyone how good and busy you are, you will do just fine. If you work hard and are humble, forget it, no one will recognize it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should have promoted me years ago. My clients saw it, my peers saw, and I saw it. Now I work at a competitive firm and they see it. Something must be going wrong at BlackRock if they keep losing talented people.
