I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good for people interested in learning about finance domain. Good payouts, specially if firm is doing well. Great employee benefits, flexibility etc.

Cons

I have seen lot of politics getting played between regions (NY vs BGL, LDN vs BGL etc). Also- your manager is like God for you (your career, your pay increments etc). Most bangalore-based teams end up playing support role for prod applications.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage people to move between various teams (internal mobility) instead of letting them stay in one team forever.

    Keep bonuses in line with other BBs or you'll see retention rates dropping...

    I worked at Goldman Sachs as a contractor for 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.
