    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office was composed of very smart and ambitious people. You are given the opportunity to contribute from day one, the learning curve is quite steep but team members are very supportive and willing to teach. Flat corporate structure where even interns have access to VP's and Managing Directors.

    Cons

    Far away from NY.

    Pros

    Great brand name. Employees generally have a high level of competency, and are great to work with. A lot of opportunities for growth, as everyday is a challenge.

    Cons

    Company is pretty lean, may or may not be a good thing. Hours are long, and they keep you busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider beefing up a little, when you stretch employees out too thin, that's when there's higher attrition rates.
