Advice to Management

Keep bonuses in line with other BBs or you'll see retention rates dropping...

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

    Pros

    The salary!
    You are working witha lot of very intellilgent people at tthe top of their game. That's a pleasure.

    Cons

    For me, the culture didn't suit. I don't see that as a Goldman failing perse, just that I prefer an environment that's a little more amenable, a little more space for socialising and interacting with my colleagues rahter than only via a formal meeting etc. I think I was just not able to adapt to their way of working.

    The interview process is torture!

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good place to work with a lot of support, resources to progress. Very big on their community outreach, and LGBT initiatives.

    Cons

    Be careful of temporary contracts, if it's less than 9 months then you are probably just there to fill in before a full contract person comes to take your place.
