I have been working at Goldman Sachs

Pros

Very good compensation. Smart people keep it interesting. Driven culture makes the day go quickly. Company's repuation helps to produce distinctive culture.

Cons

Generally managers are promoted on their ability to do a specific job very well - they are often much less skilled in people management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Produce better people managers not simply revenue producers. Place more value on those who are not revenue producing. Reduce politics.
