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

Pros

Great experience, exposure to very high level people for an entry-level job, good place for developing financial skills, great credential

Cons

Work hours are crazy and it will be the hardest you have ever worked. Tough to have an active personal life outside of work and spouses/partners may not be understanding

Advice to Management

Some of the hard work seems unnecessary and could have been avoided with better planning. Communicating deadlines in advance instead of last minute could save a lot of difficulty without compromising the work product.
