    Experience has been overall good but difficult unless you pretend to agree with everything "Goldman"

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

    Pros

    Competitive environment. In the good years, if you've performed well per your manager, bonuses are quite good. Good training and the company does push community involvement.

    Cons

    For the Salt Lake office specifically, management truly subscribes as SLC as a cost savings center. Salaries are justified lower due to location, but only for those hired on in SLC versus if you transfer in from another location.
    For internal mobility, some jobs can be blocked if they don't want you to move, which seems contrary to what managers say.
    Review process is really only about what your manager thinks of you.

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

    Pros

    great technology...genuinely good people to work with
    can learn a lot...awesome stepping stone for anyone starting their career
    very understanding with family/health issues...they are definitely waking up to work life balance

    Cons

    Career can stall no matter what you do...everyone and their mother is a vice president. not much respect for advanced degrees gained while employed. Technologists need to be able to manage a program of 1000 moving parts and still be able to troubleshoot code.
    Users are used to 100% white glove service, which creates a culture of highly customized systems and very tactical solutions which equals high maintenance.
