Pros

Benefits... Health care, 401k, all the best. If you like operations work, this is the place to be. Ranked as the top employer in Utah.

Cons

For working in Salt Lake City, it pays well. However, a same-level operations analyst in NYC/Jersey City makes much more. Further, much of your pay is based on performance bonus, which reviews are heavily biased and leaves room for wage discrimination. Immediate management is out-of-touch. Merit rewards no one... if you'd like to succeed, be sure to network well and create the perception of value. Emphasis on "perception". Overtime pay is half-time... but if you work any less than 50 hours/week, you'll yourself in a serious "conversation" with your manager--regardless as to whether you have work left to do. Again, the perception of being a valuable employee, and this includes just working late for the sake of working late, is what matters. But if you still want the job, make sure you play to Goldman's egos, as they like to hear how "big-deal" they are, because they work for a "big-deal" company. There are very few finance roles at GS Salt Lake City... it is a major operations hub for GS.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    The networking with senior management.

    Cons

    People are too busy to help. In order to speak to somebody for longer than 30 second, you have to request time in their calendar.

    Advice to Management

    My direct manager never had any interest in what I was doing.
