    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You really are exposed to more opportunities at a faster rate than you would be in the same position at another company. You'll learn an intense work ethic and you will see your value rise.

    Cons

    Hours can get long and it's not uncommon to have to sign in over the weekend

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed my one on ones with management. Sometimes it seems secretive as to what future progression is being mapped out. Openness helps the individual understand their potential and expectations
