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

Pros

Very high level of intellectual capacity from colleagues, working with big numbers and amazing reputation

Cons

As soon as the position cuts plans were public, the atmosphere became toxic and the inter-personal relations suffered from that

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will be surprised how your team member are smart quite most of the times. People try to hit more than expected performance all the time.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is like a full-marathon with sprint pace. You will need to control your balance on work and vacation to prevent being stressed out.

    Advice to Management

    Proper media communication given people are considering the firm being under moral hazard.

    I have had a great experience working at the company so far. Everyone is very intelligent, and works very hard.

    The office atmosphere is not the friendliest. There is quite a lot of competition amongst all levels of the organization.
