Pros

long, demanding hours but the quality of the work, the people i've worked with and the pay makes it worthwile. GS is certainly not for everyone but offers superb training and is a good launching pad for future career opportunities

Cons

the hours... the hours... the hours... late nights and week ends included. forget lunch unless out with clients and little vacation time if in a position of real responsibility

Advice to Management

management could better interact with the more junior people within the company ... offer more training and mentoring and fill the lower ranks on the decision making process that happens at the top.

    Pros

    Great place to work, very challenging, good compensation and very nice people. In addition its is one of the best banks on the street.

    Cons

    Hours are long 7 am - 7 pm. I think in the internship they take much more people than they need. We started eight and only two got a job offer.

    Advice to Management

    I think I am in no position to offer advice to one of the best financial institution. I think their history and track record speaks for itself
