I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You really are exposed to more opportunities at a faster rate than you would be in the same position at another company. You'll learn an intense work ethic and you will see your value rise.

Cons

Hours can get long and it's not uncommon to have to sign in over the weekend

Advice to Management

I enjoyed my one on ones with management. Sometimes it seems secretive as to what future progression is being mapped out. Openness helps the individual understand their potential and expectations

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

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