    I worked at GSEC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to launch a career. Learn how to be a professional and strong work ethics. Also worked with great people.

    Cons

    High stress, and low appreciation. At Goldman you are treated as a number and they make it clear anyone is disposable. I would recommend Goldman as a stepping stone. Get in and get out

    Advice to Management

    management already knows what Goldman is. turn and burn....................

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The training and reputation alone provide employees with ample compensation for entry level positions. Senior employees also have excellent opportunities and superior salaries.

    Cons

    Expect long hours from the start and stressful on the job training with high performance demanded from the outset. Salaries generally start at market norms.

    Advice to Management

    Build out and further emphasize the opportunies for projects and bolstering profits for the company. Most employees want to contribute to the company's success and protect their jobs but lack the access and information to make meaningful contributions beyond the narrow scope of their daily tasks.
