      Great work life balance, leave early on Fridays all year round, great compensation package and lots of benefits. Employee diversity is highly valued and great collaboration. Volunteer days, sick time, vacation time and other benefits are really awesome. 8% 401 k match starting 2023, lifestyle spending account. Very capable and smart people. They value your input. I feel valued here, great vision and initiatives to help the housing market. Good top leadership.


      Meeting heavy and changes/progress can take a while.

        Company culture is great, leadership is good, and everyone is super friendly. Good perks as well.


        Tech stack used is on the older side and it takes a long time for decisions to be implemented.

      Interview Tips

      Investment Associate

      How long does it take to get the actual offer letter from Goldman Sachs after a call with HCM? It's been a week and still no updates. The VP from HCM I talked to heavily emphasized that the call was not a guarantee of offer, but that the team really liked me and would like to extend an offer. She also said that she needed time to get approvals from higher ups before she can send the actual letter. Is this usually how it goes with Goldman?



      I recently interviewed for a role that I was very excited about. The interview with the hiring manager was going so well and then he said, “we’re a family here.” It’s a really large company and I have a friend who is on this team and she has said so many amazing things about the company and the job itself. What do y’all think about this? I know it’s often seen as a red flag but all other flags are green. If it helps any, he is not from the US but it is a US based company.


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end
