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

    Pros

    Your hard work is recognized in this company and it really ties in to your career progression. If you are talented, you are looked after. And none to minimal office politics.

    Cons

    Work pressure, yes. They test your limits at times. Since its a financial firm, all the decisions are based on commercial effectiveness. So, don't look for a lot of R&D kind of work here.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing great in recent times. Your focus on ensuring that GS becomes a tech company more than anything else is refreshing and welcome. Just give a little bit of consideration to what someone wants to work on rather than dictating it.
