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

Pros

The brand name, presstige, and the career opportunities that comes with it. Goldman is world-known as an industry leader that higher the sharpest and most hard-working graduates

Cons

Easy to say the work hours, but what else can you expect in an industry like this?
However, Goldman is known for keeping a very "lean" organization, meaning that it constantly tends to be under-staffed. Part of this is of course because employees tend to be given attractive offers from other firms

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

    Pros

    They give a lot of freedom to contact employees and access to all the buildings, which makes you feel like part of the company

    Cons

    Everybody works hard, which is understandable, but many of the individuals seemed to be more focussed on themselves. There doesn't seem to be much of a camaraderie culture. The recruitment process was very impersonal even though I had done a two weeks internship.

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

    Pros

    Best bank on the street, very meritocratic, lots of opportunities provided, I was a spring intern and people were very happy to help me with whatever I asked, people were passionate about what they did

    Cons

    All desks are different in their ethos, I didn't get to know every desk completely, i imagine work/life balance isn't necessarily great at times
