Little advancement opportunity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDynamic culture, smart coworkers, nice office space, accessible managers, decent wage compensation, good benefits package (great healthcare), support for professional certifications

ConsLittle career advancement, very little skills training offered other than "on the job", no mentorship program, extremely vague/arbitrary bonus structure even for high performers (no targets to hit or performance incentives- it all depends on the how the overall company does), low wage growth, promotion process is an annual event with strict limits on how often people can be promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork with people to develop a 3-5 year professional development plans, with targets they can strive and that are realistic within the company/division.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
