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

Pros

great people, great potential, LBGT friendly

Advice to Management

either don't hire smart people or use the skills you buy, but don't make smart people sit and watch you all figure it out

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

    Pros

    Very smart and hardworking colleagues. Fantastic information sharing culture and openness of senior management is great to see.

    Cons

    Aggressive culture. Also, New York HQ could mean a lot of travel to NY if you are in an office outside of the city and wish to get ahead/greater visibility in your career.


  2. "Great name, but limited upward mobility."
