    I worked at BlackRock as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gorgeous offices, great (if confusing) technology

    Cons

    No privacy, everyone sits at long tables. People are unfriendly to newcomers. Their technology systems are staggerly complex, and it often takes more than a week to get a phone set up, have a simple distribution list created and gain access to their travel and expense system. They also tend to hire contract employees, some of whom have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would keep a close eye on your managers. The way people are treated is very unkind.

    Pros

    Forward thinking individuals and management. Excellent training opportunities and ways to enhance your knowledge of the various financial markets and instruments.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, not enough transparency. Performance evaluations were bureaucratic and almost one sided, even department goals reflected on your overall progress whether or not they were in your control.
