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

    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

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    Good balance of work and home when the going's good - relaxed environment, respectable in just about every way. Haven't been here for that long, but it's one of the best jobs I've ever had in terms of allowing me a life outside the office. Surprisingly little office politics, especially compared to similar positions with similar firms.

    Cons

    The communication between upper and lower levels really leaves something to be desired. A little sketchy on the opportunities for advancement based on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real complaints to date, shockingly. Keep up the good work.
