    Pros

    Steady work - company isn't going anywhere.

    Cons

    No work / life balance. Out of touch managers. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Participate in 360 training. Reward those who are not in management better.

    Current Employee - Vice President in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company, leader in Asset Management and Finance Industry. Very well established. Business leaders are very knowledgable, and experts in their areas.

    Cons

    No career growth and no leadership opportunities, if located in San Francisco. Actually career goes downhill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act as a true global company. Distribute management and expand in strategic locations. Provide career opportunities in these locations, not only in NYC. BlackRock acquired BGI. Not only great business acquisition, but also great talent and skills.
