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

Pros

looks good on the resume

Cons

weak management, lots of politics
not easy to transit internally
compensation is poor and the good work is not being appreciated
most of the employees are treated like numbers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

not just your client is import, your employees are also very important. If you don't make changes, lots of smart people will leave evantually.

    I worked at BlackRock as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gained great exposure to the municipal bond industry. An industry that is not really taught in classrooms.

    Cons

    Being a finance intern, one is bound to get some abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management. Regularly had conversations with upper management that are frequent guests on CNBC. Even got a chance to meet the legendary Peter Fisher.
