    A very horrible place to work, not a place for honest and hard working people.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you want no life and a great pay, must work here.

    Cons

    Too many, but here it is in short: Unfair treatment, partiality exists to the extreme. no transparency in processes. Management is very bad. No feedback mechanism in place, the shabby one that exists does not serve the purpose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm tired of giving advise/ suggestions. Go look at the plight of employees and have some mercy.

    Operations: Good as a first job, poor growth, brain-dead work

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Goldman Sachs is has good Facilities, Infrastructure, Transportation and food. New joiners are made to feel welcome and a lot of time and resources are provided to get many new graduates up to pace to work in a global firm such as GS. A very demographically fair and balanced environment and special emphasis is paid to diversity and soft culture. An employee can be assured of an opportunity to give anonymous feedbacks or complaints with regards to any concerns faced. Many soft skills such as team work and time management are some of the few Pros that one can take away.

    Cons

    only a good place for an Indian graduate who may need exposure to working in a large multi national organization. Although starting salaries are attractive than many other firms for a new graduate, a person should be willing to sacrifice a huge portion of their work life balance to be able to succeed here. "Perception is reality" is something that employees swear by. Best ways to work ones way up is through politics and constant "creation of a perception" of hard work and dedication. GS bangalore's culture differs greatly form other GS offices. The culture in Bangalore is dictated by an ever growing Expatriate Management population who lead extravagant lifestyles working fewer hours than they did from where they came from, who also ensure maximum amount of work is milked out of hapless and never ending supply of new graduates seeking a job in an "MNC". The salary is terrible for the amount of work one does and a management retention policy of "carrots and stick" ensure few stick on.
