Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great Minds sitting around. Knowledge are shared across the company. An open concept company.

Cons

Upper Management Centric. Hard to climb up the corporate ladder and almost no explanation are given. Work Life Balance is bad, not matter how hard they are trying to improve.

Advice to Management

Don't just listen and report. Act on their comments.

    Still in the process of integrating acquisitions
    Formal training needs to be improved
