Pros

Great brand name for prospective clients and employers.
Entrepreneurial spirit
Success driven, not many layers of management

In more junior levels, underpaid compared to industry, though just the opposite as you get more senior

Advice to Management

Management style of managers could be improved, there is too much focus on short term wins.

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

    Pros

    Well established processes
    Stringent recruitment process ensure you work with very talented people
    Transportation facility

    Cons

    One's experience depends on the Division and Department, which you join. People are highly opinionated. Culture is very harsh on employees and people get fired for no reason. Lot of teams do not have local managers. With no local support, you could be scapegoat. You can easily get fired for someone else's mistake or even lack of visibility. Management does not provide any opportunity to explain the situation.
    Salary hikes and bonuses are very low. It depends on your Division / Dept.
    Low quality and repetitive work done out of Bangalore.
