    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    In Goldman Sachs, modern technologies are being employed, and that the firm is entering digital finance at the moment will make the firm on track to revive from the past stagnant years.

    Cons

    Goldman Sachs should stand up to competition, from the competitors like JPM, BlackRock on the street, to those tech giants like Google & Microsoft where Artificial Intelligence innovation is taking place.

    Advice to Management

    Move fast and break things. GS need to dare to desire to win over other competitors. Drive up revenues, get rid of budget cutting mindset that the current management team is exercising. LESS REVENUE, MORE COST CUTTING WILL ONLY BRING VICIOUS CIRCLE.
