    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Huge Career opportunities
    2. They take care of employees in every way.
    3. Strong corporate structure to make sure no one is misused.
    4. Good, transparent leadership.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but not a lot of handholding if you are a slow learner. They expect top-tier, smart work from every employee. If you want to move up from an administrative position, you will have to lobby for it - nothing will just fall in your lap here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your hard work. Thumbs up!

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will find some of the smartest and most humble people here. People around you are understanding. Compensation was good. Good to learn for the first few years.

    Cons

    The new management team.
    Lack of focus on non IBD division
    Organizational change. A highly capitalistic firm is trying to be a socialistic firm. In the name of higher synergies, divisions are being merged not being mindful of the fact that the very reason there was a differentiation was because of a difference in capabilities and nature of work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop tinkering with the firm. Lowering SG&A expense does not add to revenue, looking for new growth opportunities and clients does.
