I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Collaboration, innovation, risk aversion, responsibility to the client and to other stakeholders is ingrained in the culture, we do what we say and we say what we do.

Cons

Only the drawbacks of a large organization.

Advice to Management

The people at the lowest ranks in the organization who have their ears down to the ground can at times provide the best insight into customer and client needs.

    I worked at BlackRock as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was very impressed by the kind of people that I worked with. I did not have much experience going into the whole business-world - so I didn't know what to expect. Everyone at BR was very accommodating.

    Cons

    At times I think a lot was asked out of me as an intern. I wish that I had a better idea of what was expected of me on day 1, so that I could fulfill expectations from the get-go.

    Advice to Management

    I had a great experience as an intern and would like to thank the management for such a great opportunity. It really is a wonderful company.
