    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time

    Pros

    People are very intelligent and helpful. My team was heavily invested in my day to day as well as project ideas. Also a fast paced environment where you learn something new each day

    Cons

    Can feel like a large company so as an Analyst sometimes in the greater scheme of the organization you could feel a little lost.

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The work is interesting, the office is well located and relatively new with nice amenities, smart colleagues, and overall good benefits. There is still some prestige attached to the name.

    Cons

    Lack of growth, poor HR, too much red tape. There is no clear relationship between performance and compensation. The company's revenues and headcount has been stagnating for years.

    Advice to Management

    Increase efforts to provide better career visibility and opportunities. Get rid of under performers and take a closer look at managers' actual management capabilities.
