    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    This is a big firm, so expect a reasonable magnetic effect. Probably looks good on a CV, but that's it.

    Cons

    East coast NY centric. Failure of management to empower smart people, unbelievable destruction of trust and and value. NO attempt to engage previous BGIers who were some of the smartest people in the industry. Lied about remuneration process and bonus payments

    Advice to Management

    Look not a the queue of people at the front door wishing to join your firm, but also at the number leaving by the rear exit, too ashamed to say they worked there.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best and only reason I can think of is that the name BlackRock on your resume will garner some attention from future employers.

    Cons

    You have to sell your soul to make it here. They burn through people with no regard at all. I would not recommend to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the ivory tower and meet with employees to see reall what is going on. Some good people are being ignored.
