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

    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.

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    This firm has a wealth of talented people (although you might not get to interact with them depending on your role). Many people here find it a prestige to work at GS.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to move across business functions and inter-departments.
    Lack of communication from management of what's going on within the firm and in the financial markets.
    Whether you'll find the firm a great place to work also depends a great deal on the people you work with. It could be fun and rewarding with the right people but stressful and unproductive with arrogant, self-righteous co-workers and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate.
    Recognize talent.
    More development opportunities.
