Productive Workplace where every role makes a difference in the company's growth/reputation.
Senior Executive Administrator/Chief of Staff (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 29, 2016
Love my Job! HIGH Demand and at Nitro Pace which never leaves dull moments, but you have to be sharp at all times. No down time. Blackrock only thrives off of QUALITY Talent and their salaries prove they only recruit the crème de la crème.
Transfer Agency Oversight Associate (temp) (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – September 9, 2016
I was very impressed during my short stint at BlackRock. Everyone was so professional and educated. I noticed that they organized a lot of social events and I hope that some day I can work there as a full-time employee.
Productive work environment which stressed e-mails and meetings.
Senior Fixed - Income Portfolio Manager & Director (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 8, 2016
My work load was continual from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM with very little if any down time. Lots of meetings and increased workloads due to mergers and acquisitions but without adding staff or redeploying staff in critical areas. Still with very junior staff and at times by myself, I was able to perform and excel in my area. The hardest part of the job was to coordinate between the different areas of BLK since it has become very siloed. The experienced co-workers who survived were very professional and excelled at what they did.
At the Delaware office-they had a gym and cafeteria. PHL - well stocked coffee room
no breaks, lack of work/life balance, inability to work out of offices closer to home
Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 20, 2016
Think of it as Goldman Sachs without the bonus. As an analyst you are expect to do all the work, make relatively little money comparing with banks and hedge funds, and the only training you are getting is BlackRock Aladdin, which is not of much use outside of the company.
