Product Strategy in Alternatives - Blackrock
I currently have an offer for a Product strategy role in the Alternatives (PE// Infra/ Real Estate) division of , as a grad.
While I went through the interview process I still struggle to understand some topics and people from the team I spoke with seemed reluctant to give away too much info:
Hours. How much should I expect? 50h on average? 60? 90 on peaks?
Compensation. I know the base is now 54k GBP as an analyst. How much is the bonus and can anyone provide a rough overview of the total compensation once you (hopefully) climb the ladder (ASS/VP/MD)?
Career development/exit opportunities. While I think that Blackrock is that kind of place where you can stay for your entire career I do not want to be stuck in a position if I will eventually get bored after 3/4 years. Would I have the opportunity to exit to PE, VC or startups later on (strong preference for VC/startups)?
Daily tasks. I've heard that as a junior most of the time is spent in answering LPs requests. Does that help me in gathering any transferrable skills? Is it just answering questions to investors or is there something else? How does your daily job change as an Associate/VP/ Director/MD?
I would really appreciate it if anybody could provide any direct or indirect experience.
