Very fast paced. Too many back to back conference calls that get in the way of getting any real work done. Best time to catch up is after hours.
Super fast paced! Fresh grads will have an easier time; as a lateral hire from another bank I found the pace crazy at times. Would only recommend if you want to devote your career to GS
You will never be done with your job. I've seen many devote their lives to Goldman and Goldman took everything they gave and told them it was not enough.
Not a healthy place to work if you want to keep your soul.

My 2 year work experience at Goldman Sachs felt like a 10 year tenure. I learned a great amount about the position and the role it played in the market. But it was frowned upon to have a life outside of the bank.
