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

Pros

- The people. Extremely smart and they motivate you to perform at your best.
- The prestige of the brand. Regardless of all the recent negative news about GS, employees / former employees are still proud to have worked at the firm.
- Great exit opportunities when you're ready to leave. Other employers highly respect the name

Cons

- Hi stress. No matter how hard your work, there's always the thought of, should I be working a little harder.
- Constant "do more" type of environment. You can get burned out after a while.
- Pay isn't as good as you might expect

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time

    Pros

    People are smart, team-oriented, and hardworking generally. You will never be bored. Great benefit package. Decent developer community.

    Cons

    Low compensation, long hours. Some of the systems are using very old / obsolete technologies, but it seems like there is an effort to improve this. Perks aren't what they used to be or what you will find at a tech company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation or lower work hours in technology to improve retention rate for top talent.

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

    Pros

    I had worked at other financial companies such as Tiaa-Cref and Bankers Trust, but Goldman had the best climate. I had to interact with many upper management folks and never had a bad experience.
    I made the most money for what I did at Goldman. They pay very well and the bonuses were fantastic.

    Cons

    I did have a few horrible experiences with people from IT, where I worked. It appeared that integrity and professionalism was directly proportional to how much money you made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the immature and irrational, don't promote them!
