    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Senior management go on about work life balance but in reality when you put in 50+ hours per week it still isn't enough and they want a lot more. Never before have I worked somewhere when I've been made to feel guilty regularly for only staying an hour and a half late.
    Poorly managed. Their long term solution to a problem is to throw more hours at it rather than solve the issue or put a process in place to improve. Seems to be the standard across the company.
    Lots of legacy systems, no continuity or link between them making processes very fragmented.
    Promotions seem linked to quantity of hours worked rather than quality and volume of work contributed.

    Advice to Management

    Employ enough people to perform the role rather than bleeding current employees dry.
