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

    Pros

    Competitive environment. In the good years, if you've performed well per your manager, bonuses are quite good. Good training and the company does push community involvement.

    Cons

    For the Salt Lake office specifically, management truly subscribes as SLC as a cost savings center. Salaries are justified lower due to location, but only for those hired on in SLC versus if you transfer in from another location.
    For internal mobility, some jobs can be blocked if they don't want you to move, which seems contrary to what managers say.
    Review process is really only about what your manager thinks of you.

    Continue to develop the Analyst program across all divisions.
