Blackrock takeover of BGI was like being assimilated by the Borg

IT (Associate) (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at BlackRock

Pros1. If you're not the only person left in your team supporting umpteen applications then you can generally get time off whenever you need it.

Cons1. you will acquire a boring non transferable skill set
2. you will not be given any transferable technical training unless you are willing to do it in your own time and pay for it yourself
3. If you're not a legacy Blackrock employee you have little chance of career development
4. not enough legacy BGI employees left to support the BGI applications
5. management ignore staff who have resigned and are working their notice - in some cases they won't even look at them - bizarre!
6. low morale and a general feeling of hopelessness in the London office

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect and appreciate your biggest asset - your employees (unless of course you really want a mindless army of zombies working hard but not smart)
Start this process by getting rid of the circle of management that hide the real goings on from those at the very top.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
