Politically adept workforce and leadership with little people management skills despite rhetoric

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

ProsOrganization with deep pockets
Competitive salary and benefits
Smart people
'Do good' initiatives benefit the disadvantaged, but are clearly self serving as well

ConsSuper political; need to always watch your back
Recent influx of 'outsiders' a huge contrast to dedicated long-term employees
Many 'managers' who only manage upward, not even sideways and certainly not downward
360 review process is a sham and political tool
Large established organization better at marketing itself than delivering what it promises

Advice to Senior ManagementReputation allure is enticing to those interested in mining 'gold' but GS is living off its past.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
