    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They take care of their people in every way. Very impressive facility at the NYC headquarters, with all the comforts. Strong corporate structure to make sure no one is misused. 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.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You would work with extremely talented and 10x developers. Additional responsibilities and leadership skills are learnt at each level of career. Networking is in its blood.

    Cons

    You always need to ask what you want, whether it comes to money, bonus, promotion.

    Advice to Management

    There is a huge pay difference between laterals and fresh campus hires. Laterals pay should also be balanced to keep them happy. Biased environment doesn't provide a friendly environment.

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

    Pros

    Great business culture, with a lot of work to be done. No one stops moving, and everyone I encountered over my tenure was helpful.

    Cons

    The nature of the industry means that there is little to no downtime, and you have to be careful to avoid burning out quickly.
