I have been working at BlackRock full-time (more than an year)

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.

    Pros

    It's one of the best financial companies in the biz. While it's Pretty cool to work with the top fund and money managers right out of school, you end up doing a lot of menial work, rather anything that creative or meaningful.

    Cons

    Not very innovative and way too old school for me
