    Former Employee - Associate, Portfolio Analytics in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Associate, Portfolio Analytics in London, England (UK)

    I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learn how the operation of a multiframe system works and at the same time understand the analytics being calculated. It does provide young employees with a chance to contribute to the development of the operations.

    Cons

    High employee turnover means the average length spent in the firm is around 2 years within Blackrock solutions for analysts. It also means you will have no life and be in the back-office being underpaid for the operational risk of your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on supporting the learning and development process of young analysts.

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

    Pros

    Growing organization
    Excellent global exposure
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    Very poor middle management; at least in Gurgaon location
    Not fair compensation hike
    Lots of office politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than focusing so much on managers and team leads try delegating responsibility to person who is actually working. Don't create layers in communication
