They look after their employees

Operations (Current Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

I have been working at Goldman Sachs as a contractor for less than a year

ProsHigher than average salaries and also better bonuses
They do more for employees than any place I've ever worked

ConsMany groups have very long hours
No matter how good a company is, you can never escape the politics

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen managers are already working too many hours, don't give them more work by cutting back their head count. The inevitable conclusion of that policy is that people who you value and need will leave. Remember, Goldman looks great on people's resumes and your best people will be sought out. Don't make it as easy for them to take that great offer!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
