Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

+ When the year is good, you might make a decent bonus
+ Colleagues are universally intelligent

Cons

- very long hours and extremely high stress
- you are a worthless cog in a massive, cold, cruel machine - expect no sympathy and cold logic, and you will be fine
- if you like SQL selects and inserts, and FTPing files around, then you will be fine - most programmers spend their lives doing this and wrestling with stored procedures
