Pros

I have been with BlackRock for six years. The benefits and the culture of the company are wonderful.

Due the the company being very large it is difficult to know the business as a whole.

    I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    BlackRock has increasingly become one of those names on your CV that impresses people. The firm is well resourced and is increasingly likely to offer international opportunities.

    Cons

    The firm remained very centralised despite massive expansion and didn't feel like initiative was being encouraged or rewarded. Making sure your back was covered became an increasingly common strategy among senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like adults. Move on managing directors unwilling to take on that responsibility. Adopt a 360 review system to find out whether you are getting the real story from your next tier of managers.
