I have been working at Goldman Sachs

Pros

Pay is good, but if you divide by hours worked, it's just slightly above average.
Opportunities are open if you are a go-getter.
People take ownership of project/issues - work gets done.
Lots of talents around you to resolve issues.

Cons

Expect to work long, long, long.....hours.
Sell your blood for pay.
Company has become very bureaucratic.
Disconnection between IT development and production support.
People move around often within company - requires constant retraining of staff

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to groom the new employees to produce quality work over quick and dirty crap that can't be maintained.

    Pros

    Brand name that helps you feel more confident and proud about what you do. Working with smart people and always streching yourself you find out your limits.

    Cons

    A lot of work that might be stressful some of the times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more advantage of the creative minds of your personnel. This is the future of the company as a whole.

    Pros

    if you stick around long enough you can make crazy money. The brand name of the company is extremely strong, so you can use it to get future jobs without much issue.

    Cons

    you probably won't want (or be able to) stick around long enough to make crazy money. Most people don't last 3 years. It's not that they are all being fired (although some years that might be true), its just an incredibly draining place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way that you evaluate analysts. Right now, the "best" analyst is really just the teams favorite analyst (with an exception maybe for trading analysts). This is a big turn off.
