    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Incredible culture, unbelievably smart and motivated people with less pretention than other places I've been. Very team driven (lots of shared credit and people who want to see you succeed). Incredible amenities (fantastic office building - specifically New York, but really all are great), great gym, healthcare, cafeteria. Wonderful sense of philanthropy (all employees are nearly required to take a day off to contribute to a charity).

    Cons

    Some cultural differences between the various divisions of the firm. Hours can be a bit long and you are expected to be available 24x7, especially with such a global footprint. Firm is drastically cutting costs and moving many teams to lower cost areas such as Salt Lake City.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do a better job advertising the strengths and human side of the company. People who don't work there think it's evil, while people who do work there think it's incredible (and not because of compensation - but more because of how great it really is). Need to get that view out into the marketplace.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and bonuses, great benefits, dynamic environment, cutting edge technology, work among some of the brightest people in the industry, great educational and learning opportunities, career mobility for some people, not for all.

    Cons

    Demanding place to work, no real work/life balance, double standards and lack of career mobility for administrative staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can really afford to cut some outrageous executive pay to avoid laying off administrative staff
