Oct 31 24 Comments

Hello,

I recently interviewed at blackrock, and got an offer today for a swe role in their Aladdin Product Group. I wanted to get the blind family's opinion on the TC, and ask about benefits.
Like,
How is the health insurance coverage,
Commuter benefits?
Gym/health benefits?
Anything else that is better than the basic standard we have at the bank?

TC offered: 130k, 20k bonus
Current TC: 116.5
Yoe: 4
Location: New York City

Thank you.

      It is better than what I have currently in terms of work. Right now, there is just no work or growth. I plan to continue to study and interview though. But might join if nothing else comes up before the join date.

      I have a really good opportunity in NYC (and very remote friendly as well). Hit me up for details if you wanna fix healthcare in the United States :)

    Don't expect too much growth at BlackRock, especially in APG.

      I somewhere did feel this myself. I am leaving now coz for my situation, blackrock looks like an upgrade, and it most definitely is. But, in a year or so, I'd cry over the same stuff and want to move again. For sure I need some more time to prep for better TC jobs :(. Thank you for the insight.

      Have you tried to negotiate with BlackRock? You are going to be an associate, right?

      Yes, associate. They started the talks from 120k actually. And gradually went up as I let them know that 120k wouldnt make sense for me to move.

      You might be able to negotiate the sign-on if you are going to join by the end of the year, since you are not going to take the BoA bonus.

      How are the health insurance premiums? Here at BoA, my premium increased to more than three times when I added my wife to my plan :(

    Health insurance is good, gym you have discounts to take membership outside.

      Also, I heard the main BlackRock office (52nd st?) has free food. Does it?

    Mostly standard benefits... In some case little less than Banks. Bofa is huge organization in terms of employees compare to BlackRock. Dont expect all benfits here. But decent place to work and grow. Not sure about free food.. You might be place across the street in 40e where there is no free food.. Don't depends on it.
