I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern (less than an year)Pros
Choosing to work at Goldman Sachs for my six-month undergraduate co-op was perhaps the best opportunity of which I've taken advantage. Their culture of mentorship, pursuit of perfection, and diversity (in backgrounds, cultural ties, and ways of thinking) of employees made it an excellent experience. All but a handful of people in my 80-person office were accessible and willing to share advice. The hours were long, but I think this is a pro for an internship because it builds work ethic and makes any future jobs with less demanding time commitments seem easier. I learned more than I knew there was to know while also making solid connections.Cons
Hours and lack of breaks during the day/"go, go, go" mentality made work-life balance impossible to achieve during the week, but PWM is not as bad as other divisions like banking.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Help interns find housing; continue involving interns in meetings with visitors from other offices; encourage senior people to allow interns and analysts to listen in on client calls.RecommendsPositive Outlook
