(based on 29 ratings in 2018)


"The quality of the work was very good overall. I completed day-to-day tasks as well as project work and both were valuable."
Intern, Edinburgh
"I act as the project manager when bringing clients on board, implementing changes or terminating an account."
Intern, London
"I am working on a development-based group project with the other interns in my team. We meet in the morning, check progress and then the majority of my day is spent programming by myself or with another intern if I am struggling. The work given is very good as it is achievable in the time we are here, yet is nicely challenging too."
Intern, Edinburgh
"I am pretty satisfied with the work I did day to day as it was a lot of help to the team. The tasks that I would do were also very handy for me to understand the core basics of what the company is. I did a lot of basic tasks such as sending confirmations of transfers or dividends paid to the clients, which also enabled me to create my network of contacts with the BlackRock employees and the clients with whom we work daily."
Intern, Madrid
"Most of the work was very interesting and engaging. There was a balance between teamwork with the other intern on my team and individual projects. There were also a few less exciting tasks such as formatting etc, but it's part of the role. Overall, it was better than I expected."
Intern, London
"I was able to work on a project with real value and take over the tasks of an analyst who left the team. I also enjoyed working with senior people and getting tips and suggestions from them while feeling very valued as a part of the team."
Intern, London (City of London)
"I have been assigned a variety of work but would have liked to experience work in different departments."
Intern, London
"I'm very satisfied. I have been working on multiple projects that were useful to directors in order to make competitive analyses on the Italian business. I also attended meetings with clients, events and video conferences that allowed me to understand what being a salesperson means and to stay in touch with the other EMEA offices."
Intern, Milan
