Pros

Great people. Nice culture. Bright future.

Cons

Pressure. Long hours. No lunch break.

Advice to Management

365 degree performance review is very helpful. Flat structure is good. We need to further enhance the PWM division since it is not yet the best among the league table.

    Pros

    Goldman Sachs is a good company to work for. One of the best features of working there is the good pay. The benefit package is also very good. It's a large organizations with opportunities all over the world. The company has weathered the credit crisis well so far which is a good sign for us as employees. The company tries to promote a worklife balance which is positive but the hours are long and sometimes it's hard to have a life outside of the office. There are a lot of smart people at Goldman which makes it a rewarding but also very competitive environment.

    Cons

    The environment is very competitive. Sometimes a little too competive. The hours are long. Some weeks it's hard to have a life outside of the office. Sometimes one does not get the credit one deserves when completing something. I guess this may be the case in many companies but at GS it seems like a lot of competitive people at the same workplace makes the environment more poltical then what may be the case at other investment banks. Overall a great company and I have a hard time filling up this space with negative feedback. The long hours are definitely one of the major down sides.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing, it's working.
