Work Life balance. Smart, motivated colleagues who put our clients first. The gym is excellent.

There are times that I feel out of the loop on internal matters.

Advice to Candidates

We are a diverse culture of teamwork minded employees in an exciting and dynamic environment. We bring innovative thinking to solving client problems and strive for excellence in every aspect of our work. At every level, employees can discuss their work with senior people at the firm. My quality of life is excellent affording me flexibility to work from home at times. I have always been very satisfied with compensation and value the company match in my 401k. The overall amenities in wellness, food, healthcare are all here so you rarely have to leave work for appointments.

The people

Downers

The reputation of being a bad person for simply "working on wall street"

Advice to Candidates

Goldman Sachs is not a company, rather, it is a home. It is a place you come every day to see and work with the people that fill your life with great substance and intellectual curiosity. It is place where you not only start a career, but you grow and nurture a career. And it is place that greatly values its employees equally, if not more than, its own clients and business; a place where people value each other with the highest degree of respect and trust.
