I have been working at BlackRock full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Market leader in the asset management industry. The firm's strengthening brand looks good on a resume. The work can be very engaging and challenging.

Cons

The firm is constantly restructuring due to rapid growth causing a high turnover in many business groups.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The firm should spend more time developing talent and clarifying new roles during transitional periods.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 3 years)

    Pros

    Cannot think of any opportunities for growth, though the work-life balance is okay.

    Cons

    The company does not value its employees. There is subtle discrimination among employees. No transparency from the upper management. Promotions are all politically driven.
