    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very well respected industry name. Strong analytics. Large variety of products.

    Cons

    Very little upward mobility. Very little work reward for a job well done. Buddy system is how the company works. If youre in, youre set, if not you will ride out your days in a cube.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting comp year after year while paying yourselves outrageous bonuses off the work of others. Nobody in middle management sells anything or manages any product. Our clients dont invest because of you, but managers get the big money... Why do you think all the talent is leaving?


  2. "Strongest leadership team on Wall Street"
