I have been working at Goldman Sachs as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Extremely talented, driven, aggressive, smart employees and interns - all very proud of Goldman Sachs, name carries so much weight on your resume

Cons

you have to be super aggressive to get promoted or get a full-time employee, real teamwork or camaraderie does not exist

Advice to Management

Do not over-hire interns - hire interns if you actually want to hire some as full-time

    Approves of CEO

    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.
