      Pros

      It’s a great time to join the Renewable Power Group at GS. We’re a fast-paced shop that has quickly become the largest C&I solar asset owner in the US. You’ll be tasked with a lot of responsibility, even as an early-career professional, and expected to deliver day-in and day-out. My favorite part of working with the group is being able to bring my authentic self to work everyday and feeling like my voice is heard. The vibe is more similar to a small-shop solar developer than an investment bank, especially in the Boca office. Pros: - Lots of responsibility - Goldman Sachs brand name - Constant learning and rapid growth - Friendly peers

      Cons

      Frequent project acquisitions and financial closings can lead to late nights for everyone on the team . . . but you’re working with the best in the industry and learn something new everyday. This is to be expected in a dynamic environment with the level of capital the team has to deploy. If you’re looking for something more “chill” with flexible hours, GS and GSRP are probably not for you.

      Goldman Sachs

      Hi! I’ve been at Goldman for 10 months now and got approached by a faang recruiter and interviewed thinking it would be good practice. I ended up getting a product job and that was my long term plan post mba. The pay is also over double what I’m currently making. My boss isn’t the nicest and I’m really nervous about putting in my two weeks. Is it bad I’m leaving within 10 months? Any tips for putting in my two weeks or what to say? Thank you in advance for the help
