Pros

- Well rounded exposure to the investment mgt industry including various asset classes, investment products, diverse investor universe and varying investment strategies/objectives
- Decent knowledge sharing across different investment teams
- Flat organization with numerous formal and informal networks and accesible senior management
- Good work/life balance

Cons

Where to begin!

- Overall firm strategy is aligned to be the biggest...not the most competent or profitable
- Varying degrees of expertise and competence across different investment teams in fixed income, equity and alternatives
- Lack of integration between various teams/offices thereby leading to a very inconsistent team culture
- Bottom of the industry compensation and terrible benefits package
- Lack of operational policies, upward mobility and career opportunities

    Pros

    BlackRock has a friendly working environment. Given the rapid growth of the company, there are more areas and more opportunities.

    Cons

    I think BlackRock provides relatively lower compensations to the employees. And when it gets bigger and bigger, there is more and more bureaucracy. Also people are not very motivated sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Good leadership and they are willing to provide employees what is going on with the firm and share the firm priorities.
