A great place to work

Vice President (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsOverall, GS is filled with honest, super-smart people who care about each other and do great work. The environment is challenging, but supportive, and you will definitely be pushed to do your best.

ConsThere are some politics at the senior level, but no more than what you'd expect from any large company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive a bit more structure to career development. Past the Associate level, people seem to be expected to carve their own paths. That's fine, but sometimes they don't know what opportunities are out there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
