    Approves of CEO


    Surrounded by extremely high-quality talent, which is a great environment for personal development. Talent development processes are robust and rigorously tracked. Career progress is well understood. Internal mobility program affords great exposure across products and geographies.


    Long hours and difficult work/life balance are definite features of a career in GS's "front office."

    Advice to Management

    Recent steps made on improving the "work/life balance" for analysts are a step in the right direction. Further measures on this front will increase talent retention.
