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

    Pros

    enormous breadth and depth of products, solutions, clients, locations, smart people, plus a quite impressive bench of senior leaders. strong brand and culture, strong sense of pride to work for this firm.

    Cons

    very complex organisation which primarily grew through acquisitions over the past years. very fast pace. compensation and promotion criteria fairly intransparent. sometimes too much talk, and not enough action/exectuion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be serious about decentralisation and empowering people outside HQ
