I worked at BlackRock full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Bonuses, excellent pay rate, large global company. Most managers acknowledged opinions of employees & were willing to work together to improve situations. HR was also helpful in resolving situations when management was uncooperative. Good place for women to get promoted but not so much for minorities.

Cons

Long commute, late hours at times, expected to work OT - no questions asked. Some diversity but not enough in upper management. Still run by the old boys network in upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees, that you manage, with respect always. Promotions should be based on knowledge as well as the ability to get along well with others.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very technology focused with a lot of opportunity to learn and build a career. It takes a lot of justification but if budget can be justified money will be spent on technology

    Cons

    Long hours, no work-life balance. There's a strong expectation for employees to devote everything to the company with no regard for family or personal interests

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize your employees have families and lives outside of work
