Former Employee - Managing Director

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

Pros

They pay well. I want to be a rainmaker, working 20 hours a day. This is where to be.

Cons

You'll work 18 hours a day 6-7 days a week for 10 years before making partner if you're good. If you're bad you'll be out in 2 years.

Advice to Management

Keep it the same. Hire me please!
