    I worked at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    Leadership grooming of high percentage of employees, promotions were not easy to get but worth the pay hike once gotten, company with all the right directives for employee growth and inclusive of minorities. Best benefits I've seen from any employer.

    Cons

    Long and crazy hours, high stress environment all around, demanding company from top to bottom, demanding internal clients, lots of red tape.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Driven individuals working toward a common goal. Very team-oriented and meritocratic. Senior managers really go out of their way to try and make it fun, which can't be said for many other places in finance.

    Cons

    Definitely requires you to prioritize your professional life above your personal life.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    Good opportunity to see how the bank operates and it's technological infrastructure. Good program. Ability to network with fellow interns as well as meet some (intermediately) upper management.

    Cons

    Not a lot of responsibility almost at all. Many tech interns don't actually get to code helpful stuff. Work is very mundane and can get very bureaucratic.
