      Pros

      Working with really smart people provides lots of opportunities to learn from the best. Great opportunities to move internally.

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 19 years

      Pros

      They take care of their people in every way. Very impressive facility at the NYC headquarters, with all the comforts. Strong corporate structure to make sure no one is misused. Good, transparent leadership.

      Cons

      Not really a con, but not a lot of handholding if you are a slow learner. They expect top-tier, smart work from every employee. If you want to move up from an administrative position, you will have to lobby for it - nothing will just fall in your lap here.
