    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Best pay rate I've ever had good steady hours unlimited over time union benefits

    Cons

    OMG were to begin ...securing a bunch of pompous snotty people isn't pleasant they expect you to keep them safe but they treat you like crap. Co workers, very few were sincere most of them are a bunch of kiss butts back stabbing just to make themselves look better in front of management . The managers only 1 of them were reasonable the others were a bunch of corporate puppets .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop selling your soul to the devil for a check .... Have some respect for yourself and other humans.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has a great reputation and gave me opportunities to meet people that I probably would not have otherwise. The training programs are pretty good as well.

    Cons

    I worked 80-90 hrs/week almost every week, which was okay because I loved what I did. But people at the top tended to not handle stress well and that trickled down. It seemed like respect only went one way, which I couldn't deal with. Additionally, a lot of people that work there think they are really smart or entitled, which is a joke. Lastly, there are tons of meetings that are really redundant but mandatory, which seemed like a waste of time given the amount of work that was usually yet to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "People are our greatest asset" shouldn't be your motto unless you are prepared to actually treat people with respect.
