    I worked at Goldman Sachs as an intern

    Pros

    The people are incredible, everyone is hard working, smart, and dedicated, without being overly competitive. Everyone is incredibly fun and the environment keeps the pace lively even if the work can get kind of dull.

    Cons

    Specifically in Operations, its very manual work. It'll be long hours and doing more processing related work.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative environment - ability to work with a talented and diverse group of people across the globe. Culture of learning - access to online and classroom training for career development and training

    Cons

    Work life balance - team sizes are much smaller than other firms resulting in heavy workload and long hours

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to employees - aside from monetary compensation, acknowledging good work with a "thank you" would help motivate team members for their day-to-day contributions
