I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than an 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.

    weak management, lots of politics

    most of the employees are treated like numbers

    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.

    Former Employee - Trading Assistant Intern in Princeton, NJ (US)

    I worked at BlackRock as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gained great exposure to the municipal bond industry. An industry that is not really taught in classrooms.

    Cons

    Being a finance intern, one is bound to get some abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management. Regularly had conversations with upper management that are frequent guests on CNBC. Even got a chance to meet the legendary Peter Fisher.
