Very hard culture to adapt to, if you are an 'experienced' hire

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

Pros

The salary!
You are working witha lot of very intellilgent people at tthe top of their game. That's a pleasure.

Cons

For me, the culture didn't suit. I don't see that as a Goldman failing perse, just that I prefer an environment that's a little more amenable, a little more space for socialising and interacting with my colleagues rahter than only via a formal meeting etc. I think I was just not able to adapt to their way of working.

The interview process is torture!

    Pros

    It's a great place to work. I made a lot of friends there. But one thing I would advise for anyone looking into a career within the firm is that you have to have a thick skin, so be prepared to take a lot from people because at times it can be an incredibly unforgiving place.

    Cons

    Very bureacratic at times. Also they work you incredibly hard there so if you don't like hard work Goldman is not the place for you. For me personally, I have had to sacrifice a lot of my friendships and hardly see them due to always being at work.

    Pros

    Superb "cult-like" culture
    Get to work with the best and brightest in the industry
    Friendly and approachable colleagues

    Cons

    I like its aggressive nature of people. Quality is the main focus.

    People who do not possess such traits may find it hard to adjust.
