Pros

If you love golf, you'll like working at GS. Good deals on clubs and chances to experience the golf world.

Cons

The GS culture took a big hit this past year with the exit of the two leaders in HR that drove the change in the GS culture. The culture has reverted back to the old school approach to managing. Leadership training has stopped and the development of people has been put on the back burner. The company doesn't seem to be looking to the future, except maybe to sell it. The hiring of very expensive senior managers have strapped the company financially. Does a company this size really need to pay a COO $400k + living expenses + stock?

Advice to Management

Stop making decisions on a quarterly result. Look to the future, not the next 2 months. More realistic exec salaries would give the employees a feeling you really care about the company, not just your back accounts.
