Great group of motivated colleagues
Associate (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 31, 2018
Fun place to work. Very collaborative and motivated group. The few issues are that the Chicago office is limited in advancement opportunities and 360 reviews can be inaccurate in determining performance.

Fun and Laid Back
Savings Specialist (Current Employee) –  Richardson, TXOctober 26, 2018
It's a fun environment, but very slow paced. They hired so many people and so the volume of work has decreased. The benefits are great and the managers are so helpful.

14 hour days and treated like disposable garbage
Tax Analyst - Consultant (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTOctober 22, 2018
It’s good for the title of working at Goldman Sachs. They will treat you like dirt. Will drop your contract at the end of the season with no humanity and no warning. The management sucks and the loyalty is non existent. Really no hard feelings but just prepare yourself for a miserable time in operations.

Great place to learn; Culture could use some work
Equity Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 21, 2018
Goldman has a lot of good and bad. You will work with a lot of smart people. You will also deal with a lot of office politics and bureaucracy. Ultimately though, It's a great place to start a career.

Too bureaucratic, no work life balance
Summer Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 19, 2018
Working in Goldman as an intern should be an amazing experience. But the culture here is a little bit fake. People pretend to care you a lot but actually not.

You need to be in New York City
Associate - Fraud Analyst (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTOctober 16, 2018
Goldman Sachs is an ok place to work but if you want to advance in your career then you need to be in NYC. Sure they have policies that say you cannot avoid promoting someone just because they are somewhere else, but that cannot be enforced. I have seen this happen many times and have seen people leave the firm for this very reason.
Pros
Dynamic place
Cons
Career stagnation, low salaries
