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

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, hard working but fun.

Cons

Remains very NY-centric, and people will often refer decisions to senior management even if it is within their remit.

Advice to Management

de-centralise management - there are good people outside NY who can get the job done.

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

    Pros

    I have met some of the senior people in the firm and their humility amazes me. The culture generally is good and their is a conscious effort to imbibe the global culture in the newly set up office while still retaining regional values.

    Cons

    Too money-minded. Typical big behemoth firm with its arrogance and resistance to change. Systems/tools are in-house developed the knowledge of which may not have value outside the firm. Most of the managers sitting in US are rational and transparent but the newly set up Gurgaon office reeks of office politics, bureaucracy and corruption.

    Advice to Management

    Your major focus is always on people who bring revenue to you directly.
