During a time filled with unimaginable challenges that tested the resilience of companies around the globe, I am pleased to see BlackRock listed within the Top 20 of Fortune Magazine’s annual ranking of World’s Most Admired Companies based on corporate reputation.


As we have in the past, Fortune collaborated with our partner Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputations. We began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune's Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more...

BlackRock - Why Work With Us?

Who We Are image


BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. As a global investment manager and a leading provider of financial technology, our clients—from grandparents, doctors, and teachers to large institutions—turn to us for the solutions they need when planning for their most important goals. We are building a culture of innovation, curiosity, and compassion, one that enables every employee to make an impact.

Where we came from, and where we're going

We were founded in 1988 by eight people in a single room in New York City, who believed they could build a better asset management firm. One that would put our clients' needs and interests first, that was dedicated to fact-based, data-driven investing, innovative thinking, and a passion for understanding and managing risk.

Fast-forward more than 30 years later, BlackRock is still founder-led. Despite having grown to over 16,000 employees and becoming the largest asset manager in the world, we haven’t lost our entrepreneurial, start-up spirit. As we continuously evolve and adapt, technology plays an increasingly important role in how we conduct our business and serve our clients.

    Good atmosphere, it was online because of the pandemic. I had three different interviews, one was technical while the others were more situational. Each interview was about 30-40 minutes on my super day. The MDs I met with were very nice and made me feel comfortable.
