    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 10 years)


    They take care of their people in every way. Very impressive facility at the NYC headquarters, with all the comforts. Strong corporate structure to make sure no one is misused. Good, transparent leadership.


    Not really a con, but not a lot of handholding if you are a slow learner. They expect top-tier, smart work from every employee. If you want to move up from an administrative position, you will have to lobby for it - nothing will just fall in your lap here.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.


    First Round was online on Hackerrank, two questions. First one is vector dot product.

    Second one is tricky, which is to find the total number of pairs in array = k. I passed 5 of the test cases except 1.
