    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment with great working culture. The exposure to different aspects of the business is great. Employees have the potential to work on high profile projects. .

    Cons

    The company is extremely big and bureaucratic. The ability to move laterally is getting more and more difficult. This can lead to bad morale amongst the younger employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees on how they should improve their skill set in order to advance to the career of their choice.

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

    Pros

    Some of the people there are pretty solid, you can expect to learn all the industry standard stuff, oh, and making pretty powerpoint charts.

    Cons

    The company now has 10000 employees, but it still feels like an old boys' club; with the few founders sitting on the top. You are either 'in' their circle or 'out'.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond the 3 people that always sit next to you, there are talents all around the firm.
