I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Extremely smart group of people. Great deal of responsibility and work given from the very minute you start. Working on some of the most complex and interesting deals on the street.

Cons

Long hours. Weekend work. Very tough to be able to manage your life outside of work.

Advice to Management

Continue to work on providing more work/life balance for junior members of the team.

    Pros

    The people that work there are incredibly talented, hard working, and intelligent. Just having Goldman on your resume pens up many opportunities in other sectors.

    Cons

    Depending on what group you're in, you can spend long hours on the job. I was putting in roughly 80-100 hour weeks. You're compensated generously, but have to make the job your life. Everyone expects you to live to a certain ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Vet the management and provide 360 reviews.


  2. "Constant pressure to perform"
