poor company
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 11, 2017
I have been working in Blackrock more than 8 years. Blackrock has excellent benefit and vacation days. However, the compensation is terrible, (no increase and cut bonus in the past two years). They become very demanding on performance review and objective setting. It could take you couple days to set up the yearly objectives plus we have to finish our daily jobs. If you are a manger ( the worse) you have to work on your management goals and taking many classes to achieve your objective for the year. No recognition on your hardworking. The performance review only record your negative feedback. You will feel that you have no value and no recognition in this job.
Pros
good benefit
Cons
bad compensation

Great Benefits. Poor work life balance

The company has great benefits. And has good opportunities. They throw awesome parties. However, the work load so high that the work life balance is very poor.

Analyst (Current Employee) –  GurugaonJune 19, 2017
BLK is good company to work, they have very strong culture. Only one issue is job security. You have a continue pressure to perform. Management and facility is really good like any other BLK office in world.

Hard work is well rewarded
Investment Accounting Analyst (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, DEJune 15, 2017
There is a lot of opportunity if you work hard, but you have to work very hard. Average days are much longer than the normal 9-5, and breaks are rare. Pay is good, and the work is very fulfilling. I would recommend working here to anyone who wants to hard to advance their career.

Prime Brokerage and finance (Current Employee) –  nyMay 16, 2017
Good company but very political and no longer a small firm culture. Management cares more about their own progression. Hard to make internal moves but they are supported

Interesting firm
Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 11, 2017
Interesting firm, advancement is encouraged but very unclear as to how to do it. Moving pieces are constant but that's the nature of most jobs. I wish there had been more development.

Director, Analytic's Group (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 24, 2017
I loved working for BlackRock and getting a sense of what working on "Wall Street" would be like. It was a fast paced environment. It was extremely tiring however. Having to travel to NYC weekly became very draining. However I am so grateful I had the opportunity to learn from top-notch analytical and financial individuals.
Pros
Challenge
Cons
Demands and stress

Poor management, difficult to get promoted
Vice President (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 17, 2017
Attrition of great talent and great coworkers due to stuffy management that does not promote from within and people leave to find better career opportunities. Another irony is that management likes to talk about inclusion and diversity all the time but it consists of predominantly caucasian men. Very few women at top levels.

Dont get paid upto the market and work life balance is 0. Plus only some teams have competitive edge

Need good connections more than work experience
Global Corporate Strategy - Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 3, 2017
The firm prides itself of meritocracy but it only works if you're well connected to senior management. It's working hard on diversity but still needs more progress.

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 24, 2017
I would have stayed longer, but needed a full time perm position and that wasn't an option at 6 months. I enjoyed the work culture, as other EAs were extremely helpful and friendly.
Pros
Training, kind colleagues
Cons
Had to contact for at least one year before the prospect of perm hire
