Blackrock was not up to date with modern administrative processes.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 1, 2018
I compared working at a tech company vs a banking company and the processes and procedures were not stream-lined like they were at Microsoft. Blackrock is located in downtown Seattle and have beautiful offices in Two Union Square.

Stay away form the Delaware site - NYC or Princeton are better for your career

Great Company
Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, DESeptember 21, 2018
BlackRock is a great company to work for and strives to be the industry leader. While BlackRock has great compensation and benefits and strives to create a culture that coincides with contemporary social environment, unfortunately its dramatic increase in size has created limitations in internal movement and networking. Roles/ operating departments are beginning to become isolate from one another in terms of locations which makes it difficult to network and progress internally.

Good corporate environment
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJJuly 26, 2018
But it is a very strict corporate structure. Managers are constantly changing and often the managers are less aware then their employees are of processes and procedures.

First Job
Cash Analyst (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, DEJuly 22, 2018
Was one of my first jobs out of college. The only real reason I left was there wasn't a "team" mentality in the group I worked with. Group lunches were silent, it was only a manager thing. It is a great company to work for, however, there are bottlenecks for advancement.

Investments and Portfolio Solutions - Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 16, 2018
BlackRock has a lot of smart and talented people - it's a great place to work. At times the culture can be sales-oriented, which may appeal more to people with a desire to talk with clients for a living.

Stressful environment— lots of turnover in my current position.
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 15, 2018
Due to turnover, creates an environment of chaos. Whole firm does not operate like this, so it depends upon the department you are in. They neglect support staff and expect them to support too many people whose expectations aren’t managed. You are expected to be on call, 24/7.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Unlimited vacation, but not enough time to use it due to workload and expected coverage.
