    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.

    It makes you wear all the hats as per the requirement which helps a person to gain insights into various domains.

    You might end up being a generalist instead of a specialist.

    Advice to Management

    Providing support for industry-wide certifications and training and not just focussing on internal tools.

    Great working environment once you enjoy what you are doing, and are in the right division for you
