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

Pros

The people are very smart and each person is tasked with responsibility at the firm. It's a great place to launch a career as you learn how to deal with the Wall Street corporate culture early

Cons

At times, managers could have clear favorites and could be pretty partial. There's also some amount of politics as in most big companies

Advice to Management

Learn to ensure all employees feel like they're equally valued at the firm as that would bring the best out in the employees

    Cons

    excessively competitive, somewhat cold and artificial, individual culture (not communal or sufficiently interactive), nose in the air,

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

    Pros

    Employees are ambitious, smart, driven. Management knows how to push the right compensation buttons in order to motivate employee behavior. Goldman on one's resume can open many doors.

    Cons

    Employees need to drink the Kool-Aid in order to survive. Office politics can be a major factor in job performance. Employees are often driven solely by money and ego (which is probably not unlike most Wall Street firms).

    Advice to Management

    None.
