    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is among the best. It's not astronomically better as the other financial companies have wised up but is competitive and among the best for senior people.
    Benefits are good, with dr office and gym on site.
    Alot of talented and smart people working there. Their review process is for the most part pretty fair and balanced.

    Cons

    Alot of type A personalities - very aggressive culture. Trust no one. In IT it's not too bad however there are people out there that like to get ahead by pushing you down. On the operations side, friends of mine have described it as an absolute nightmare.
    Too many meetings so real work behinds at 5pm, which is why the hours are long.
    You can't just be a smart developer, you have to make noise and be a marketer as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone has to be super loud and type A to be effective.
