    Pros

    The set of skills you acquire here are among the best you'll ever receive for really any corporate or entrepreneurial pursuit that follows. The experience attained here is roughly 2X more than the same time spent elsewhere, and recruiters recognize the high brand quality of the firm. Goldman recruits highly motivated people who tend to be very sharp.

    Cons

    The culture lent itself to high levels of competition, encouraging employees to seek (whether consciously or subconsciously) opportunities to "throw colleagues under the bus" in order to get ahead, particularly at the junior level where there are only so many spots open to promote to Associate. Although management is relatively decent compared to other Wall Street firms, they can be very condescending towards employees and not fully honest about the thinking behind decisions made. There's a high degree of "face time", like anywhere on Wall St, and Goldman will never hesitate to put work ahead of anything else in your life, whether that be personal interests, friends, or even family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat junior level employees more like human beings, recognize the damaging effects of 100+ hour work weeks and permanent fixation on blackberry devices. Find creative solutions to enhance productivity while still challenging and developing employees. Allow for time to be spent with family and interests outside of work...no, ENCOURAGE this, recognizing the benefits of a more satisfied and balanced human capital asset.
