I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart people, pockets of excellence, market leader, great brand. Global and ubiquitous

Cons

I worked here for just over a year having been recruited from a prestigious investment bank. Joined with other smart people, all of whom have since moved on due to frustrations with how decisions are made and the lack of consistency between mgmt strategy and implementation. Very frustrating experience

Advice to Management

Don't hire people too senior and skilled for the job you really need. Sometimes you need B players.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, smart people, innovative for a financial company

    Cons

    Not a meritocracy. White males frequently promoted over higher achieving women and minorities- just look at senior leadership! Discrimination is rampant, and people spend more time gossiping than doing work.

    Advice to Management

    Promote smart people who work hard.

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

    Pros

    The culture is supportive and hours are not excessively demanding. The management in my group was extremely knowledgable and experienced.

    Cons

    Far commute for me, nothing to do in Princeton. No structured training program to teach fundamentals. There was not too much opportunity to interact with other groups in the firm.
