Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Competent and driven people
- Brand name

Cons

- Lots of pressure
- Lots of politics
- Super corporate people sometimes lacking simplicty, hands-on management skills
- Despite legend, average payoff (ratio hours/compensation). Compensations are not the highest in the industry because a lot of people are just happy being part of GS

Advice to Management

- Recognize the best elements. 50% are staying, but 50% are leaving because of poor rewards

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Superb intern program, smart people, the sharp one's can easily grow here and make an impact. Awesome year end bonus and compensation for full time college hires

    Cons

    People crib a lot, specially lateral hires. Incompetent people will be kicked out very quickly. High Load.

    Advice to Management

    Good focus...keep going!

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Great company to build a career in a fast paced, global company. You will get lots of responsibilities but can definitely gain knowledge and experience of not only how top security company is but also to work with intelligent professionals.

    Cons

    I must say that the work hour can be very crazy if you are professional (not contract based or secretary) as you will constantly need to communicate with global offices.
