I have been working at Goldman Sachs

Pros

The company has great benefits and a strong culture of unity and hard work. My position is highly analytical, but you might not get that as an operations employee. Your duties will depend completely on what teams are available when you start if you are in the operations division.

Cons

The culture and tasks of the individual team you are placed on in Salt Lake will determine more about your overall experience than anything else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Match employees up with duties that align with their strengths rather than what might be open at the time. Promotions are merit based, but some activities go unnoticed.

    Pros

    People, Opportunities, Learning, Compensation, Challenges

    Cons

    Not enough time. Thin staff, late meeting start times...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start meetings on time... no need for the "Goldman 15" nearly every meeting started 15 minutes late... really the only unproductive time during the day.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    The culture of efficiency, hard work, and drive are incredible. It remains pretty professional at all times, though the brilliant people you work with make up for the all-work mentality

    Cons

    -Hard work/life balance: depending on your division, there's pressure to stay late, though it's often for good reason
    -Getting fired is always a surprise to everyone--lack of transparency
    -Runs lean, but sometimes TOO lean

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to work if you fit the corporate, type-A culture. There's room for career growth and experience.
