    I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Extremely smart group of people. Great deal of responsibility and work given from the very minute you start. Working on some of the most complex and interesting deals on the street.

    Cons

    Long hours. Weekend work. Very tough to be able to manage your life outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on providing more work/life balance for junior members of the team.

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

    Pros

    Goldman Sachs is an excellent place to begin your career. The training programs are robust and holistic, and managers really care about developing each and every person.

    Cons

    The pressure to 'do more' is pervasive and inescapable. While this mindset does help drive progress, it is often excessive, and getting ahead requires inordinate amounts of effort. Also, pay is very dependent on the market and is therefore unpredictable in the short term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The system of "more pay in easy years, less pay in hard years" is demotivating and frustrating. Set money aside for future years to stabilize these peaks and troughs.
