    Pros

    Supports employee career development. Good place to work if you're willing to take on new challenges.

    Cons

    BlackRock acquired a competitor in December 2009, so they're still working on ironing out the kinks. That said, progress is being made, and it's a good place to work.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It is a true meritocracy, where people's success isn't driven by the school they attended or who their daddy is/was, but by their talent and drive.

    Cons

    It is beginning to feel like a big company with the attendant big company challenges--the need to evolve to a big-company managment structure, disparate locations and different legacy cultures mixing together. It's not a start-up any more. But it's still a great company with a great business model.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training and development of the next generations of leadership, because the founders will not be around forever.
