I worked at BlackRock full-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, hard working but fun.

Cons

Remains very NY-centric, and people will often refer decisions to senior management even if it is within their remit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

de-centralise management - there are good people outside NY who can get the job done.

Recommends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    not just your client is import, your employees are also very important. If you don't make changes, lots of smart people will leave evantually.
