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.

    I worked at BlackRock as an intern for less than a 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.

    OK. Overall quality of experience seems to depend on manager.

    Somewhat arbitrary bonus structure. Strategic direction was not always clear.

    Clarify strategic direction. Map bonuses to realistic annual personalized goals as well as overall performance.
