The best 10 weeks!


Uppers

Everyone in the firm was very warm, supportive, and helpful which made it easier for us interns. Also, the various networking events helped us getting more in touch with senior management. The regular speakers series also helped us get an inside perspective of each department making our decisions for various departments easier.


Downers

The really early morning series were a little inconvenient as there was no form of public transport running that early.


Advice to Potential Interns

The internship experience is very worth while as you work with highly motivated individuals, have complete access to senior management, and work around very friendly and caring environment of people. This internship will be provided you with a clear picture of what the company does and what your role in the company would be. Therefore, it makes it easier for you to decide whether this is the right fit or not.


Advice to Management

I would recommend holding more info sessions in universities and making sure that people from other than business majors understand that they can also work at Goldman Sachs. A lot of students from other major do not know how diverse Goldman is and therefore do not even try to learn more or apply as they feel it is only for business majors.

Great People, Steep Learning Curve, Bright Future in Store


Uppers

- Phenomenal culture; humble and hardworking people who want to see you succeed and proactively help you learn - Steep learning curve: exponential growth in knowledge of accounting, financial modeling, excel, powerpoint - Understanding of work/life balance: no "face time," encouraged to go to the gym, many networking opportunities


Downers

- Difficult to make plans with friends outside the office


Advice to Potential Interns

- Throw out any assumptions you have about the typical Goldman Sachs employee; there are no intimidating "superstars" at GS; everyone is humble, hardworking, and approachable. From Partner to Analyst, everyone wants to see you succeed and will act as a resource to help you along the way.


Advice to Management

- Figure out what the two-year program will be replaced by; is the "typical track" now three years until associate? Four? Two? Even if it depends on the individual, employees should at least have some sense of what percentage of each class will be promoted in two/three/four years.

The opportunities to network with other interns and senior people. Also, being able to learn so much in such a little time was awesome.

The networking events should be varied. Most of them were just standing and talking.
