I finished up an internship in software engineering at BlackRock this summer and was given return offer for full time. Obviously tech is not the main focus at BLK, are they relevant at all within the space?

    What does the full time offer look like? Is it comparable to typical tech companies?

      What are tier 1 & tier 2 companies in bay area? I'm currently interviewing for next summer's internship

      Tbh who cares about tiers. Interview wherever you think you'd be happy to work at

      Late to this but BlackRock compensation ratchets up really fast beyond the first year. The 100k number is also depressed because the comp structure skews towards bonus

      Could you suggest a number? For APG devs it’s probably only this little

      a bit out of date but the 100 jumps to 120 and then 140 within the first 4 years

    Work at a pure tech company before moving to finance. Having a FANG on your resume ensures that you'll be able to go back to tech if you want to.

    The salary is pretty bad on top of your concern over skill set growth. You want at least one of those to be above average to consider the place. IMHO keep shopping

    I bet its hard to move to more general dev positions once you have put in enough years as a deva t an investment comp; for example Blomberg is all about hash tables, even their interviewer in unable to ask anything other than implement a hash table, I would think you get very specialized at such places and rusty in other skills so much so that switching becomes difficult. I would personally continue looking specialy since they bought up M which has tanked and that they are offering next to nothing for your skills
