    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation
    Opportunity to grow your skills
    Working with bright people makes you better
    Builds you up to be confident
    Great employee training available
    Performance based recognition

    Cons

    Long hours
    High performance expected - if you are a slacker dont apply here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not every organizational change should be kept a BIG secret for too long before announcement. The secrecy only escalates anxiety amongst employees and creates unnecessary paranoia.
