Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

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.
