    I worked at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    - Compensation
    - Responsibility given to each employee
    - Great training
    - Perks (free dinner after 8 PM, free car after 10 PM)
    - Prestige of having the firm on your resume

    Cons

    - The hours - even in the Operations division (where I interned), there is virtually no work/life balance
    - Too much time is spent focused on tiny details that don't matter very much or at all
    - Too much time spent in meetings which have nothing to do with your job
    - HCM doesn't do things when they promise they will
    - As is the case with any job, some managers (like the one I had) can be quite difficult to deal with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote a better work/life balance and revamp some aspects of the firm's culture. Also, provide better training to managers so they can be more effective.
