    I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    US and UK counterparts are very knowledgeable and helping and rated as one of the best in the business.

    Cons

    Long work hours. Poor compensation structure. No proper induction program for new hires. Poor location. Not a good fit for IIT/NIT grads. No real learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Asset manager should learn that human resource is the most important asset and that should be happy. Practice what you preach: "One BlackRock" principle should reflect in career opportunities, compensation, training, values and hiring.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Evolution and change are well managed and people pay attention to the quality of the delivery and communication. Individuals are recognized for their achievements and compensated well. Good work life balance with solid managers.

    Cons

    Some of the technology stack is dated and seems overly complex. Difficult to get enough internal resources to deliver projects.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for more anonymous advice and reviews of large technical changes. Pay for some utilities rather than rolling everything internally.
