What is working from home like at BlackRock?

Pros

A lot to be learned and a lot to do, if you are lucky to have a manager who enables you.

Cons

- The job description didn't reflect the actual job - the concept of the position given during the interview doesn't exist in reality, it's their idealized version of what the job is - No support, proper training from the local offices, mostly arrogant and condescending colleagues - Transition from the UK/US reflects the lack of processes -Not able to consider new ideas or input, "it's always been done this way" attitude - Old, slow and inadequate systems that do not, in any way, allow you to do your job properly - Management doesn't take in consideration your point of view, either positive or in the form of constructive criticism - Depending on the team, you will not be able to take advantage of the unlimited holidays - No flexibility, no work from home

No flexibility, no work from home

What is overtime like at BlackRock?

Pros

Benefits, Private Pension, 1 Home Office/week, nice office

Cons

No work/life balance, overtime is expected but not paid, manual work, horrible management:the management checks on you when you are working from home if you are really online, the management checks how many minutes you spend on lunch and coffee break, they promote team members to TL level without any management skills, the local management and from abroad they speak to team members if we were like dogs or slaves - no respect at all no flexible working hours, no flexible time off, salary is low, no salary increase. Overall please avoid this workplace, I have never felt so miserable in my life like when I worked there. At the interview they say all the nice things about flexibility and how good they are, but nothing came true. They fire people without explanations.
