High Intensity and High Reward
Contingent Analyst on Regulatory Reform Team (Former Employee), Jersey City, NJMay 14, 2015
Goldman Sachs is one of the most recognizable name brands in Finance and is great to get on the resume. When you work there, you know what you're getting into - high intensity and high expectations. I enjoyed this type of atmosphere; however, it is not for everyone.

Huge firm, all depends on who you work for
Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 30, 2015
You could have a great experience or bad one at GS, it's really about who you work for and what group you're in. So, that is really what matters most.

Pros: School and Gym reimbursement programs

I really enjoyed Goldman Sachs, there was never a point in my career there that I was bored. The amount of work was vast and the opportunities the firm provided to allow for continuing education was strongly reinforced.

People make Goldman a good place to work. Some decisions made are sometimes difficult to understand. Sometimes communications are not clear, but overall, good working environment and compensation package is good. I would recommend pursuing opportunities there.

Vice President - Equities Product Controllers (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 10, 2015
Pros: brilliant type a personality intelligent people
Cons: compensation lately
Work-life balance is definitely difficult to achieve at GS but the culture is top-notch. Not only do you have the brightest people in the world to work with, they take their work seriously and treat the company like its their own and not just a job.

Goldman
Associate - Industrial team (Former Employee), New York, New YorkMarch 10, 2015
Pros: comp
Cons: sink or swim
Goldman is the best at what it does and until recently, has paid its people well for it. Banking will always be a profit center but the bank is going through huge changes now that it can't prop trade, must hold more risk weighted assets, and can't make markets in FIG like they used to. Serious change coming but not many see it yet. As is, still one of the top three best places on the street to work. Pedigree is fading, however.
