The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fires. I wouldn't go anywhere else for the training and opportunities Goldman Sachs provides.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Loved the people by whom I was surrounded - high quality and really care about both each other and the mission.


Downers

It is nearly impossible to have a real life outside of work.


Advice to Potential Interns

Really consider if you have what it takes to be successful in the most challenging organization on Wall Street.


Advice to Management

The Saturday Rule (9-to-9) MUST be enforced by the senior bankers! It felt disingenuous to be told I have Saturdays off and then still find that I was expected by junior bankers to be in the office.

Got to work on an 8 week M&A process - more experience in two month than what most get out of 4 years.
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.

Work hard, learn a lot, and have a great time.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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

Yes

Because of amazing people and a fantastic company who invested in my succes, I learned more in 10 weeks than I have in my college career
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.
