I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very good company with multiple locations and a very divere business model.

Getting very large and political. In many ways, the original employees are either a part of the leadership team or they are cast aside

    Pros

    Very well respected company within the industry with a fantastic breadth of resources available for choice projects.

    Cons

    Advancement is based purely on time spent at the company and has no connection to performance, skill sets or achievements within the company. If you are below Director level you will be treated with complete disdain as if you are an inferior human being to the Directors and above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't live off of kids straight out of college who don't know that this is not what wit's like working elsewhere. Advancing people based only on their time with the company rewards those who keep their head down and avoid innovation while you push out those who would challenge the status quo and provide true, effective, long-term solutions that won't have to be fixed again down the road.
