Former Employee - Finance Analyst in London, England (UK)

I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Competent and driven people
- Brand name

Cons

- Lots of pressure
- Lots of politics
- Super corporate people sometimes lacking simplicty, hands-on management skills
- Despite legend, average payoff (ratio hours/compensation). Compensations are not the highest in the industry because a lot of people are just happy being part of GS

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Recognize the best elements. 50% are staying, but 50% are leaving because of poor rewards

Recommends
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are lot of learning opportunities and the firm does invest time and money in Human Capital. Values diversity and one can see people from different backgrounds working in the same team / floor.

    Cons

    GS Bangalore office is only for cost reasons and the Bangalore management see no limit in cost cutting. From extracting maximum work to hire and fire policies to reducing employee facilities. This is not a people organization.
