    Pros

    I believe that the environment and culture is suited to my personality. I find that that the ecosystem encourages teamwork, meritocracy and autonomy to a great extent.

    Cons

    Work life balance does not exist. Expats and locals should have a comparable pay scale when working in "3rd World" nations

  10. Great learning experience in a dynamic environment.

    GS is a full- service, global investment bank that offers client service across the firm. So it offers you the best opportunities globally in financial services.
