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.

    Pros

    every one is very nice. Younger crowd.

    Cons

    its starting to get too big i think. You are increasingly becoming a number and not a valued employee... i doubt my upper level management know my name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management needs to be around and involved more.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - focusing on becoming be the biggest of all, WAY TOO GREEDY
    - Great salaries and bonus for the great top few.
    - lots of opportunity for women
    - well respect - good name in resume

    Cons

    - 99.99 % of employees are white, African Americans only at the administrated assistant levels.
    - almost impossible to move within departments.
    - Moving way too many jobs overseas.
    if promoted, the compensation increment may a be liability, not worth it.
    - it is a total SWEAT SHOP - not life balance at all.
    rather bring new employees from the outside than promoting from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE value employees at all levels, not just the few at the top. Do not focus only in making so much money, focus also in your best asset - your employees. The company has great talent inside being overlooked. Treat your employees better and hold management accountable for it.
