    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.
