Great for your resume, horrible for your personal life

Associate (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than a year

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

ConsAdvancement 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 Senior ManagementYou 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
