    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Bright people, type A personalities, energetic culture

    Cons

    Lots of people fighting to make "strategic" decisions (to be noticed for promotion) while the MDs sit back and rake in cash. Superficial culture; a lot of smiling up front and lots of trash talking behind people's backs. People love to gloat over the Goldman brand but in reality they are underpaid and work twice as much as anyone else. You want proof? Excluding management, the average tenure is less than 2 years.... Chicago branch is able to sustain itself because of the large inflow of applicants wanting to be part of the prestigious GS brand. Little do they know the majority of the GS divisions are carried by the profitable few.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Continue to dwell in the 1% of the GS population and be paid the majority of the net income.

    Overall a great place to work after college

    It is pretty hard to see the big picture because every function was carefully divided, there is a lot of repetitive function on a daily basis.
