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

    Pros

    Everyone around you is very supportive of you and have no problem stopping what they are doing in order to help you along. The work is interesting, and the other fellow interns are all super friendly and in the same boat as you. The intern events are very fun, and NYC food is amazing, if not expensive - but you can afford it.

    Cons

    Some of the software is really old and no one knows how to fix it (which was my project)


  2. "Work hard, work hard."

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Goldman is willing to give you as much responsibility as you can handle.
    Some bright people, mostly at the very junior and very senior levels - less so in the middle.
    Very good exit opportunities.

    Cons

    100+ hour workweeks for the norm for investment banking analysts.
    Little concern for employees' long-term career trajectory, much more interested in maximizing their short-term productivity.
