I worked at BlackRock full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart people, committed and dedicated. A lot of teamwork and cooperation. Perhaps not as political as some other financial companies.

Cons

Absolutely no management whatsoever; not even the first principles of management are applied. Several managers are just whimsical and survive only because of their length of stay at the company. Constant shifting of direction based on whims and moods of senior management contributes to a fairly low morale.

Advice to Management

Invest in some serious management training to make it less whimsical and personality oriented.
