      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.

        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.

      Those hired/rejected by MBB, how did you get the news after the first round of interviews? Via phone or email? As of now all the comms with HR were through email, so not sure what to expect. Also it has been >1 weeks since...🫠McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company

      I recently did a phone interview and it went well. A week later, I get an in person interview with HR. They let me know I will be hearing back from them shortly. On linked in, the position I applied for opened back up, is this a sign that they decided to not hire me? I’ll be reaching out soon. But just got me disappointed.
