I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern for less than a 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

    Pros

    The people that work there are incredibly talented, hard working, and intelligent. Just having Goldman on your resume pens up many opportunities in other sectors.

    Cons

    Depending on what group you're in, you can spend long hours on the job. I was putting in roughly 80-100 hour weeks. You're compensated generously, but have to make the job your life. Everyone expects you to live to a certain ideal.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some of the hardest working and driven people in the industry, Compensation can be top-notch in "good years"

    Cons

    Review process can be very political and lack ability to effect true results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many employees who have been at the firm 10+ years feel strongly that the culture has suffered tremendously as the firm has grown. Go back to the roots of the private bank.
