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

    Pros

    very smart, hard-working people who are constantly challenging you. Training and educational opportunities are excellent, and the brand opens up doors outside. If anything, you will learn to work very hard for long hours. Keep in mind that a strong work ethic is the only way you can survive here.

    Cons

    poor work-life balance, cut-throat culture, extremely demanding

    Advice to Management

    make sure all the intern programs are rewarding, and the Managers coordinating them are trained to motivate.
