    Pros

    Working at BlackRock has provided me a great foundation to spring-board my career. The firm is incredibly inclusive that it allows all walks of life to excel and succeed. With the fast pace environment, it breeds incredibly innovation and pushing all individuals to showcase their full potential. I cannot say enough great things about this firm!

    Cons

    When there are deadlines that need to be met and urgent outstanding items, it can becomes difficult to foster a continuous work-life balance.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love the Midtown location and the proximity to Ponce City Market and the Atlanta Belt Line. The office is brand new with lots of collaborative space and accommodations for every employee. From an ethnic lens, the iHub is more visibly diverse than other offices and there are several employee networks or resource groups that have created a sense of belonging among like groups of employees. There's a huge commitment to the firm's purpose across every area of the business and leaders are incredibly philanthropic. There's frequent communications from senior leadership about the firm, the market, and the role employees play in all of it as well which is great. Mental and emotional health is prioritized by leadership and the benefits are stellar all around, especially ! It definitely feels like a safe place to be yourself and I am able to take my full self to work -- natural hair, nose piercings, tattoos and all. As a woman of color I don't feel like I have to cover and that alone makes the experience that much sweeter given the environment I transitioned from.

    Cons

    I don't like having to pay over $100/mo for parking to come to work.
