Featured Review

Former Employee - Associate

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

Pros

Excellent group of people to work with. Worked with professionals from around the world.

Cons

Consensus driven work culture may not appeal to all. Decision making is driven by multiple teams/agents.

Advice to Management

None

Current Employee - Program Control Analyst

I have been working at Barclays full-time for less than a year

Pros

Extremely relaxed upbeat atmosphere! Work Life balance!!!

Cons

Open workspace is too noisy and distracting. I prefer cubicles instead.
