I learned more here in 10 weeks than in most classes!
Jersey City, NJ | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


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!

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.

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

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.

Tremendous learning, career opportunity, compensation, and mentorship at a top tier firm.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Mentorship, hands-on learning, career development


Downers

Very competitive


Advice to Potential Interns

Goldman is cream of the crop. The internship is competitive, but yields extremely high rewards. Even if you fail to secure an offer, your prospects elsewhere are tremendous.


Advice to Management

Foster positive interaction between interns so that they become friends earlier.
