I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than 8 years

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.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to interesting investment portfolios
    Exposure to a talented junior staff

    Cons

    Poorly run by senior management
    On a downward spiral

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RQA should be pared back as an organization. The changes being made in the group are not ones which will benefit it, but only hurt the career paths of the junior members of the team. I don't recommend that those college/university join this organization - it's not a path toward furthering your career.

    I worked at BlackRock

    Pros

    BlackRock, one of the world’s preeminent asset management. First and foremost, it is exceedingly professional and detail oriented. In BlackRock, a graphic designer has to be exact, precise and accurate with minute details. It is calm, friendly, people are helpful, positive which made it a joy to work there!

    Cons

    BlackRock seems to have no downsides. I can't imagine anyone who would not want to work there. It is a highly professional place. You have to be top notch to work there though. Very detail orientated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees and less consultants.
