Great place to work
Technology Analyst (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJune 28, 2015
Goldman is a great place to work. As a woman in technology field, I was fortunate to be able to attend 'Woman in Technology' seminars conducted by Goldman Sachs. Management at Goldman Sachs is truly committed to provide its associates a rewarding career and enjoyable work environment.

A fun, yet stressful job in a fun, yet stressful industry.
Copywriter/Proofreader (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVJune 23, 2015
Pros: Free lunches in the Employee Dining Room aka "The Hangout"; free or deeply discounted show tickets, hotel rooms and other amenities.
Cons: Long work days in a 24/7 industry, average healthcare benefits, no matching contributions to our 401k plan
A typical day at work begins with a "Stand-up" -- an informal stand-up meeting to outline the day's goals and share any other relevant information regarding enhancing daily productivity for "hot" jobs. This is followed by a voluntary sharing of any personal announcements of an uplifting nature to start the work day on a positive note.

We have a cohesive team of fun-loving, witty writers and artists that laugh hard, yet work harder. Management is supportive and enhances the creative environment with frequent team-building efforts, from pizza lunches to office painting parties.

These are welcomed given the fast-paced and high-stress environment of working in the in-house advertising agency division of the world's largest investment banking and holdings corporation.

As the casinos and entertainment arm of Goldman Sachs, we have to not only address the bottom line, we bottom line have to create a memorable vacation experience for our guests.

High stress work environment
Asset Management Analyst (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJune 20, 2015
Overall, working at Goldman Sachs has been pretty good. I have the chance to work along side very educated people and there is always that push from upper management to push you to your full potential.

The only thing I dislike about working at Goldman Sachs is the fact that they run their operations so lean that it forces my team to work 70 hours every week. All other teams are leaving after 10 hours while mine stays behind until 7, 8, or even 10 o'clock at night.

Summer Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 7, 2015
The company does not have a good work and life balance, all employees work very long hours and the salaries do not account for that. There is lots of politics which makes it hard to build trustworthy relationship and feel secure in the working environment.

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.
