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

Pros

Colleagiate, tight knit, merit based (depending what you do). Overall the firm is solid and growing for the long hall. A lot of bright people. Enthusiastic driven CEO with a clear sense of direction.

Cons

Pay is in line with industry but at lower end.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you want to learn a lot and be challenged daily this is the place to be. Things are always moving never a dull day. You get rewarded for effort knowledge and dedication.

    Cons

    Pace can be draining at times and the company runs lean. Needs to be the right fit if you are looking to collect a pay check without putting in the effort than blk is not for you.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Prestige, everyone knows BlackRock. Easy to move around if you get bored with your current role. BlackRock University is awesome for technical and soft skill workshops.

    Cons

    Some of the managers never leave their offices and don't empower or talk to employees. Decent pay to start, and then it slowly (2-3% per year) creeps up, even for the great employees. I've seen this time and time again. Promotions are political, so you really have to network, which is a good if you're outgoing, but bad if you're shy even if you're an outstanding employee

    Advice to Management

    Tell the managers to come out of their offices and talk to people. Stop hiring idiots so you can feed your ego.
