They give you the tools but what you put in is what you get out.


Uppers

The people and atmosphere at Goldman Sachs was incredible. As an intern, I was treated very well.


Downers

What I did on a daily basis was very dull some days.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to sit for 10+ hours a day at a desk and work in Excel continually.


Advice to Management

You are doing an excellent job. Some of the learning series could have been shorter though, so much of what top officials have to say are far over the summer analyst head and therefore a waste of time when the speaker goes for a full hour.


Would You Recommend

Yes
