Goldman Sachs has very intelligent people and you learn a lot from each other. Everybody has a drive to be the best and this makes it a great environment to work in.
Hours are very long, work-life balance is very hard to manage if you want to move up the corporate ladder. You do not always get rewarded for your hard work.1

It's a very good place to start your career if you just come out from school. They focus a lot on continuous training, not just skill wise, but also things like how to network, how to get the most out of a performance review, etc. It's very helpful for a fresh grad to transform from school to work environment.
long working hours, and not paying enough for tech people. The rumor about the "best" pay is definitely not for tech people here. You need to work for at least 5 years to see a reasonable raise, and that's only true if the market is doing good.
