I worked at Goldman Sachs as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

There are several opportunities to learn and acquire new skill sets. I worked in a group with very supportive team members and that made my experience much better overall.

Cons

The hours are very long and upper management, in my experience, was not personable.

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best people. Mostly nice to work with, definitely smart. Firm reputation really affirmed by what they do.
    Decent pay, good benefits.

    Cons

    Very long hours with not allot of work life balance. You need to work that out yourself though.
    At least in tech there isn't allot of recognition. A bit too much outsourcing going on right now too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on cutting expenses and more on making the people you have do more with less in hard times. Motivating your good people will pay dividends when times improve and you don't struggle to find more people.
