Pros

Dedicated people, great compensation and good fiduciary values.

Cons

Culture has eroded from collaborative to an 'every man for himself' approach. This has dampened innovation and risk taking to the point that I believe they will have trouble continuing to grow the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are wasting a lot of your talent. Stop focusing so much on the old boys club and recognize the diverse talent that exists throughout the firm. Dial down the emphasis on face time.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
