I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, hard working but fun.

Cons

Remains very NY-centric, and people will often refer decisions to senior management even if it is within their remit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

de-centralise management - there are good people outside NY who can get the job done.

    Pros

    Evolution and change are well managed and people pay attention to the quality of the delivery and communication. Individuals are recognized for their achievements and compensated well. Good work life balance with solid managers.

    Cons

    Some of the technology stack is dated and seems overly complex. Difficult to get enough internal resources to deliver projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for more anonymous advice and reviews of large technical changes. Pay for some utilities rather than rolling everything internally.
