I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

+ When the year is good, you might make a decent bonus
+ Colleagues are universally intelligent

Cons

- very long hours and extremely high stress
- you are a worthless cog in a massive, cold, cruel machine - expect no sympathy and cold logic, and you will be fine
- if you like SQL selects and inserts, and FTPing files around, then you will be fine - most programmers spend their lives doing this and wrestling with stored procedures

    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.
