Pros

Extremely talented, driven, aggressive, smart employees and interns - all very proud of Goldman Sachs, name carries so much weight on your resume

Cons

you have to be super aggressive to get promoted or get a full-time employee, real teamwork or camaraderie does not exist

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not over-hire interns - hire interns if you actually want to hire some as full-time
