I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

BlackRock has increasingly become one of those names on your CV that impresses people. The firm is well resourced and is increasingly likely to offer international opportunities.

Cons

The firm remained very centralised despite massive expansion and didn't feel like initiative was being encouraged or rewarded. Making sure your back was covered became an increasingly common strategy among senior managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat people like adults. Move on managing directors unwilling to take on that responsibility. Adopt a 360 review system to find out whether you are getting the real story from your next tier of managers.

    Pros

    I have been with BlackRock for six years. The benefits and the culture of the company are wonderful.

    Due the the company being very large it is difficult to know the business as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to open up to new employees. Treat their employees as adults.

    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.
