    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.

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

    Pros

    Everyone around you is very supportive of you and have no problem stopping what they are doing in order to help you along. The work is interesting, and the other fellow interns are all super friendly and in the same boat as you. The intern events are very fun, and NYC food is amazing, if not expensive - but you can afford it.

    Cons

    Some of the software is really old and no one knows how to fix it (which was my project)
