    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work culture, surrounded by very smart dedicated people. Great management and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    More often than not, it seems as if those who "get close" to management are the only ones who move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look for talent in all places and don't hire those whom you like just because you like them. Give others an opportunity.
