I have been working at BlackRock full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Working with smart people, collegiate environment, perfect for those right of college, challenging work, and looks good on your resume.

Cons

Long hours, too much expectation for low pay, more of who you know-to get promoted. Churn and burn type of environment. The work load is too intense at times and still you're expected to do more. The inability for managers to see the value you've added, focusing too much on the impossible. No COLA, impossible pay increases unless you get promoted.

Advice to Management

Compensate those who work hard well and recognized that some people such as "middle management" are not needed.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great funds, large asset manager and great training. Compensation is ok for some positions. Risk management approach is solid. Nice offices and lots of opportunities to volunteer. Good place to start career.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance, everyone is working 2-3 jobs. Founders of BlackRock and other leaders are paid well, but management does not have a generous approach to the rank and file - attitude is that everyone can be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Be more generous to your employees, they are the heart of your organization.
