The fact that everyone at the firm was so open to talk to and everyone was more than willing to help me learn and grow. They really invest in helping you shape your career and become better overall. Great feedback sessions. Great team and culture.

Downers

It could have been longer.

Great culture. Very invested in helping you grow.

Coding thought process questions. Behavioral questions.

Promotion policies could be improved. Also, they could work on improving compensations to match tech companies.

People who are very fun to work with and who care about your personal development - gives you as much responsibility as you can handle

Staffer who cares about your experience and what you want to try

Fun deals spanning across various sectors

Going to meetings (client and drafting sessions), listening on calls

Downers

Wished I was able to get more exposure to modeling, but I think that could have changed if I stated my interest in doing so in the beginning of my internship

Advice to Potential Interns

Think about what you really want from your experience, if you are interested in banking, technology, and a great culture, I truly think Goldman SF is the best place to pursue them

Would You Recommend

Yes

Got to work on an 8 week M&A process - more experience in two month than what most get out of 4 years.

Uppers

The people that I worked with - all spent time teaching me something new.

Downers

At times, the hours were tough. But that's part of the job description, and that experience taught me a lot.

Advice to Potential Interns

Join a firm that is willing to invest in you. This is one of them - if you do well you'll have the options to move around through the mobility program - something that opens up more doors than you can ever imagine.

Advice to Management

Focus more on work-related training. General finance knowledge isn't bad - but doing things we do on the job is more useful.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The access to senior leadership, approachability of employees, overall investment in your success across the board from analyst to partner

Downers

Playing the facetime/intern game was not my favorite thing in the world

Advice to Potential Interns

When Goldman Sachs says they value and invest in their people they truly mean it, it's not just a facade. It is an incredible place to work where you truly feel valued from day 1 and know you are going to get a great education while adding value to the company.

Would You Recommend

Yes

I learned more here in 10 weeks than in most classes!

the people!! the structure of the program and all of the opportunities that it offered.

Downers

Personally, I could have taken on a lot more work (though I know that was not the case for most other interns).

Advice to Potential Interns

There tends to be a lot of negative ideas about Goldman Sachs out there, but I was SOOOO pleasantly surprised by my experience. So, don't judge them or the people who work there by things you may hear.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time you failed. Who is the CEO?

Advice to Management

Make sure to assign enough work to interns to keep them busy for the long hours they work!

Would You Recommend

Yes

Work hard, learn a lot, and have a great time.

The culture at Goldman is great. I learned so much and everyone was very helpful in getting me up to speed on finance concepts.

Downers

The hours were long, but it wasn't more than I expected.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is a lot of work, but rewarding if you put in the time and effort. You don't need to know much about finance coming into the internship, but it is expected that you will do additional work to get up to speed.

Would You Recommend
