Pros

I joined BlackRock right out of college and found it was an ideal place to start my career. The CEO and management team were highly respected which has profound affects on the culture from the top down. While it was not quite as relaxed as the San Francisco office, I found solid work life balance.

Cons

BlackRock shares many of the same issues that all businesses of its size face - some slow decision making or lack of oversight.

Advice to Management

I would have appreciated more opportunities to network and meet others within the company. I also would have liked more mentorship outside of my direct boss and group.

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive but not overly generous. Career opportunities globally are very good. Executive C-level management is excellent. Senior level management is good.

    Cons

    Typical large company challenges with unproductive competition between various units, unclear lines of responsibility, and too much focus on internal (vs. client) issues.

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing your career and start leading your people.
