I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I had worked at other financial companies such as Tiaa-Cref and Bankers Trust, but Goldman had the best climate. I had to interact with many upper management folks and never had a bad experience.
I made the most money for what I did at Goldman. They pay very well and the bonuses were fantastic.

Cons

I did have a few horrible experiences with people from IT, where I worked. It appeared that integrity and professionalism was directly proportional to how much money you made.

Advice to Management

Weed out the immature and irrational, don't promote them!
