I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time

Pros

Extremely smart, motivated people all around you. Innovative solutions that truly add value for the client. Pushed every day to be better, smatter, faster, etc.

Cons

No room for slackers. Extremely long and hard working hours. Expectation of perfect work. There is no work / life balance. But, that is to be expected in this industry in this position.

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

    Pros

    Well established processes
    Stringent recruitment process ensure you work with very talented people
    Transportation facility

    Cons

    One's experience depends on the Division and Department, which you join. People are highly opinionated. Culture is very harsh on employees and people get fired for no reason. Lot of teams do not have local managers. With no local support, you could be scapegoat. You can easily get fired for someone else's mistake or even lack of visibility. Management does not provide any opportunity to explain the situation.
    Salary hikes and bonuses are very low. It depends on your Division / Dept.
    Low quality and repetitive work done out of Bangalore.
