    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 have been working at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    Every person seems extremely smart, and usually very nice when approached.
    Work infrastructure is great. Makes it very easy to communicate with others.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be difficult, either because you are in a small team and needs to provide constant presence, or because you are in a big team but there's a lot of peer pressure.
    The cafeteria is bad and expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve your cafeteria service. That's the worst thing I've ever seen.
