I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart friendly people (though sometimes opinionated and demanding), ranks on Fortune magazine's "100 Best Employers" since inception of the list, and encourages community give-back.

Cons

Be prepared to work. A fair portion of your compensation is tied to the Wall Street economy, even if you are a super-star.

    Positive Outlook

    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
