    Former Employee - Vice President - GCG in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Global name, vast product exposure, global network of some really great people

    Cons

    Rigid promotional structures, slow moving to changes in careers and there are a lot of people in managerial positions who shouldn't be there. The performance management system is unclear and support of HR is squarely with the firm and not the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture clash between BLK and BGI is still apparent and has never really been dealt with well properly.
