      Great place for work life balance. Flexible work schedules and ability to work from home allows employees to be able to have balance in their life. From day 1, employees are given responsibilities and ownership of their own work. Strong teamwork environment. Employees are looking to support each other, very few people are cutthroat, though politics does still exist.


      Many managers do not have the experience to be great people managers. This is due to a lack of experience in workplace in general (for some fast promotions). Promotions seems to tie to groups that one works for. In addition, promotion criteria differs from group to group making it difficult for those who change groups internally to be promoted. Feedback system could use some work. There should be more communication between managers and their employees.

        Fun atmosphere to work. Casual dress code and great vacation benefits.


        Call Center leadership is expected to be 'present' with their team during work hours but this leaves very little time to complete other obligations like monitoring calls thus most managers have to complete tasks at home on their own time. 'Work/Life balance' is sometimes minimal depending on the time of year and what reports are due.

        We’re glad you’re enjoying our fun atmosphere and appreciate you sharing your feedback about work/life balance. To us, work/life balance isn’t just a perk; it’s a lifestyle, and it ensures that our associates are operating at their full potential. We take your feedback very seriously and are constantly looking for ways to improve our work environment. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Investment Associate

      How long does it take to get the actual offer letter from Goldman Sachs after a call with HCM? It's been a week and still no updates. The VP from HCM I talked to heavily emphasized that the call was not a guarantee of offer, but that the team really liked me and would like to extend an offer. She also said that she needed time to get approvals from higher ups before she can send the actual letter. Is this usually how it goes with Goldman?



      I recently interviewed for a role that I was very excited about. The interview with the hiring manager was going so well and then he said, “we’re a family here.” It’s a really large company and I have a friend who is on this team and she has said so many amazing things about the company and the job itself. What do y’all think about this? I know it’s often seen as a red flag but all other flags are green. If it helps any, he is not from the US but it is a US based company.

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end
