    Pros

    these are very smart people with tremendous resources spread across the globe....they generally have top drawer analytics and thought leadership

    the culture is changing, generally because of multiple mergers over a very short time span....they have gotten BIG which makes it increasingly difficult to navigate.

    I worked at BlackRock as a contractor (Less than a 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 Management

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