    I have been working at BlackRock as an intern

    Pros

    Really convenient and it gives you ample time to prepare for each answer.

    Cons

    I applied for two positions and only received a virtual cover letter request from one of the positions. But I was told I failed to submit a virtual cover letter for another position. I got confused.

    I worked at BlackRock as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent and Hardworking Staff, competitive pay

    Cons

    Homogeneous mentality, you have to look walk and talk like everyone else to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Foster actual diversity, not just surface level things like gender, sexual orientation, and ethnicity but actual different schools of thought. This can't be accomplished without a freedom of expression environment that currently doesn't exist.
