    I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    This organization relentlessly strives to innovate. In spite of its size, the firm is impressively agile in detecting emerging trends in the market and adopting changes. Tons of intelligents people is a big plus. I can feel I constantly learn many valuable skill sets through interacting with them.

    Cons

    If you do not feel comforatable with fast changes and cannot handle stress, this firm is not your place.

    I worked at BlackRock full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    BlackRock has an amazing culture. The firm truly believes in developing talent. The firm also is very flat and maintains an entrepreneurial spirit which has been kept alive since the beginning. BlackRock employees also exude pride for working for the firm which is rare to find in the finance world. The CEO and leadership team really want to make the world a better place and imply a fiduciary mindset to their approach.

    Cons

    It's a very demanding place to work. You end up working very long hours just to get your day to day done.
