    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great place to work, most people are collaborative and approachable.

    Cons

    A handful of disrespectful employees in Asia who do not treat other stakeholders in the same way as they would a client. They need to open their eyes to the fact that nothing is achieved in the greater scale of things without mutual respect, open collaboration and team work.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to target toxic employees who don't align themselves with the GS principles, culture and values.
