Too many politics, management distant from reality!

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Access to the client from day one. Responsibility given from day one. Excellent canteen and on-site services such as dry-cleaning.

Cons

Too many jealous co-workers who will ruin your reputation with management by taking credit for work you have done. Management itself is too distant to realize who has performed what duties in any given week.

Advice to Management

Wake up! Take more interest in the relationships team-members have among each other. Know your team.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If money and riches alone drive you, Goldman Sachs is the right place for you

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work-life balance for most roles. If it is present for some roles, consider those as exceptions. Technology application documentation is extremely poor wasting a large amount of time in unproductive activities ("The angels struck them with blindness both great and small so that they were spent in trying to find the door") Lack of process in technology services bordering on chaos. The technology team in India is without power and lacking maturity.
