Goldman Sachs: The Cream of the Crop

4.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The learning experience was incredible as well as the people, both full-time employees and interns, I met were amazing and very helpful.

Downers

The hours are grueling at Goldman and one must really endure throughout the summer. The environment was pretty stressful, but mainly that is due to the uncertainty of landing a job.

Advice to Potential Interns

Goldman Sachs is the premiere investment bank to begin one's career. If you want to be challenged and make an impact in the world and global markets, Goldman Sachs is the place for you.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fantastic growth experience - challenges you like no other company to think critically, improve work ethic, and add value.

Uppers

The amount of experience and responsibility you get - I was directly helping my Senior Analyst prepare client presentations and produce research on recent company events.

Downers

The work, by nature, can be stressful and long hours.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are very motivated and want to learn--regardless of the time commitment and stress--there is simply no better company to start your career.

Advice to Management

Ensure the managers are consistent, respectful, and have the time to help the intern.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Intense but intensely rewarding

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The culture of the firm and the network I was able to create both at the peer and professional level.

Downers

Negotiating the process of finding a particular desk.

Advice to Potential Interns

I actually believe that the program as-run is the best method possible. The downside of anxiety over the navigation of finding a home is crucial- an intern should be able to make it through that process to indicate they are capable of handling the career.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was doing real meaningful work and interacting with intelligent people.

Downers

The thing I liked least about the internship was that we did not learn much about the other groups that we were not working for during training.

5.0 of 5 stars

Salt Lake City, UT | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects were the responsibility and hands on learning experience. Many internships are more of an observation, where as this was a ten week interview to see if you are a fit for a full-time role.

Downers

At the beginning of the summer, learning the systems and gaining access is tough because I came in with so much energy, I just wanted to hit the desk and begin work.

Advice to Potential Interns

I have never been surrounded by more intelligent dedicated people for that many hours in a week. The experience has spilled over in every aspect of my life and I went from thinking 100% was satisfactory to discovering that 110% does indeed exist.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Successful summer in Salt Lake City learning from the best and the brightest in the business.

4.9 of 5 stars

Salt Lake City, UT | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were being able to work closely with such smart senior management, meeting and working with bright interns from across the country, and working on projects that have a real impact on the firm were my major highlights.

Downers

The only con I can think of, which has less to do with the internship itself, was living in Salt Lake City. Other than that, no complaints.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work harder than the person next to you. Like it or not, you are being compared to the other interns. Don't give anyone the opportunity to question your work ethic. Don't just ask questions, ask smart questions. Be thorough. Think before you speak.
