Approves of CEO

I worked at Goldman Sachs as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good place to work with a lot of support, resources to progress. Very big on their community outreach, and LGBT initiatives.

Cons

Be careful of temporary contracts, if it's less than 9 months then you are probably just there to fill in before a full contract person comes to take your place.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    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.


  2. Excellent Culture, focus is on producing the impeccable standard of 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.

    Advice to Management
