Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Princeton, NJ

I worked at BlackRock full-time (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.
