    Pros

    At GS, front office developers always have their hands full - you'll never geeky bored. A long term strategic design and implementation, or a lesser effort short term tactical solution. The hierarchy is largely flat as anyone can contribute to a project as long as he/she can carry consensus on the point. The caliber of colleagues is superior, and their is a strong culture of teamwork. Middle management is willing to listen to you. Pays are best in industry, often to start with, and definitely once you've proven yourself. Often there are opportunities to relocate internally, if there is a good match and a justified business reason.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge at GS is to find a good work life balance. Some people end up working very long hours without any regard for the time zone they are physically located in. Firm has tools to support working from home, and one should use these and find a flexible balance that suits oneself.
