    I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very flat, open culture. They are not kidding when they say they are committed to diversity. As a white male, I was unique on my team. The managers are excellent and they really give solid training and feedback to help you grow.

    Cons

    The compensation is way too low for the name Goldman Sachs. At the same time, the work you do in operations is hardly specialized and can be learned by most anyone.
