    I worked at Goldman Sachs as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional and friendly atmosphere. Everyone knows how to manage their stress levels and not take it out on other co workers.

    Cons

    No downtime. Work during lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More time to spend with and listen to support staff. Not all management are the same. I've dealt with really complicated dept heads and really nice ones.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
