Pros

Colleagiate, tight knit, merit based (depending what you do). Overall the firm is solid and growing for the long hall. A lot of bright people. Enthusiastic driven CEO with a clear sense of direction.

Cons

Pay is in line with industry but at lower end.

    Decent place to work, but compensation doesn't really move once you're in

    Pros

    Prestige, everyone knows BlackRock. Easy to move around if you get bored with your current role. BlackRock University is awesome for technical and soft skill workshops.

    Cons

    Some of the managers never leave their offices and don't empower or talk to employees. Decent pay to start, and then it slowly (2-3% per year) creeps up, even for the great employees. I've seen this time and time again. Promotions are political, so you really have to network, which is a good if you're outgoing, but bad if you're shy even if you're an outstanding employee

    Advice to Management

    Tell the managers to come out of their offices and talk to people. Stop hiring idiots so you can feed your ego.
