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

    Pros

    Hoping that the Goldman Sachs name will be a good resume booster, but I'm not sure how its technologists are perceived by real tech companies. Decent pay.

    Cons

    There is a lot of legacy code which must be constantly supported, routinely debugged and extended with "tactical fixes". The main focus is always to support the business, so this heavily detracts from being able to work extensively on new and interesting technical problems.


  2. "This is a great company to work for."

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

    Pros

    Endless opportunities. The training is intense but is well sought in the industry. GS will promote people who lack an MBA which is good in that they put emphasis on those willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Low turnover, positions rarely open up. Cronyism is well and alive but this is the law of the land.
