Pros

Good benefits, Great peers to work with, ability to get designations

Cons

Lack of upward mobility, sales desk leadership provides toxic environment, turnover

Advice to Management

Integration with iShares has not been working. You'll continue to lose great employees because the sales desk leadership is clueless. There are way too many managers. Also, I'd advise candidates to look elsewhere while you interview with BlackRock. Pay has been coming down, bonuses are down.

    I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, but too conservative to really be a thought leader now.

    Cons

    No longer innovating, pushing active management junk on the market, trying to be everything to every client and at the same time paying literally no attention to the people that help make the business worth purchasing in the first place. If you stay there, you deserve each other.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. No one like you.

    I worked at BlackRock as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gorgeous offices, great (if confusing) technology

    Cons

    No privacy, everyone sits at long tables. People are unfriendly to newcomers. Their technology systems are staggerly complex, and it often takes more than a week to get a phone set up, have a simple distribution list created and gain access to their travel and expense system. They also tend to hire contract employees, some of whom have been there for years.

    Advice to Management

    I would keep a close eye on your managers. The way people are treated is very unkind.
