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

The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fires. I wouldn't go anywhere else for the training and opportunities Goldman Sachs provides.

4.8 of 5 stars

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Engaging

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The opportunity to learn more about technology and finance

Downers

I wish there was more time to ramp up on the new technologies I was working with

Advice to Potential Interns

Future interns should consider whether they have an interest in finance because the financial components are very critical to making a useful product

Would You Recommend

Yes

1. Sometimes the hours were tough and it was hard to get through

Advice to Potential Interns

Do not focus on learning much before, you learn a lot on the spot. Focus on having a great attitude.

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.

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

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

Uppers

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

Great culture. Very invested in helping you grow.

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