I have been working at Goldman Sachs

Pros

Very flat structure
Truly great teamwork culture
People are always impressive personally and professionally
Senior managers very accessible to everyone

Cons

Long hours can be the case

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management always impressive but some heads of teams lack people management skills and appear at times to have been promoted for their commercial impact and not their leadership skills

    Pros

    The compensation at goldman is top of market. Every year as you move up in the firm, if you are getting good reviews, you can get good money. The firm has good processes for reviews and promotion. You generally know pretty well what you need to work on and what your goals for the next year should be. People are generally talented and hard working, which makes it a great place to be if you are also ready to work hard. You can learn a lot and the brand is a great one to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Goldman is a hard working place which can demand long hours, weekends, and evenings. The culture is highly political and you will have to do what your boss asks. Everything works from the top down. You are given some freedom about how to execute, but the what is chosen from above and the when is ASAP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    Great name recognition, will push you to your limits. The company has a fantastic benefits package. The company seems to care a lot about the community (they certainly give their employees a lot of opportunity to get involved). There are so many experts. You will learn a lot and be very marketable if you later choose to leave the company.

    Cons

    There is too much work. Sometimes being around so many smart people (even if you are very smart yourself) is a little exhausting. Sometimes people are a little cocky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
