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

    Pros

    Pay (initially)
    Location relative to public transit

    Cons

    Closed, secretive management structure
    Highly political atmosphere
    Promotions and pay not tied to HR's performance rating system
    Pay stagnates after hire, even for above average performers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The firm is showing cracks from growing too fast. People's focus has shifted from collaboration and client focus to corporate politics and promotion. Remove the emphasis on promotions and tie job titles to corporate titles, i.e. you need to be managing a team to be a Vice President and a group to be a Director.

    Pros

    Convenient midtown manhattan location. As it is a fiduciary business, relatively more stable than investment banks or other large financial institutionals,

    Cons

    Little room for individual talent. Management is for most part applying what is ordered rather than incorporating your own ideas and opinions too.
