    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent group of people to work with. Worked with professionals from around the world.

    Cons

    Consensus driven work culture may not appeal to all. Decision making is driven by multiple teams/agents.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    First I got a call inviting me to an initial interview for the whole securities division, then an online questionnaire. Then a second with two specific divisions they thought I could fit into. Lastly a final interview to meet the team of the specific division that wanted me most. I have engineering and math background and know very little about finance but they were really good at testing me on what I did know. They liked brainteasers a lot. They were also really great with picking divisions that could use my skills which is good because I didn't know enough to know what I wanted.
