Hard work, but the branding pays off.

Analyst (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat 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.

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

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