The opportunity to work on a real world project that will be used by the firm. Various trainings and networking events. An assigned buddy to help you get adjusted.


Downers

It was only 10 weeks long.


Advice to Potential Interns

Goldman Sachs is highly involved in technology and innovation and stacks up really well with technology companies like Google and Microsoft. If you are interested in a career in technology Goldman Sachs is certainly an employer to consider.

Significant responsibility

The DREAM internship!
Jersey City, NJ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Very supportive teammates and managers as well as very friendly colleagues.


Downers

A little too many meetings.


Advice to Potential Interns

The customer may be king but here the intern is the crown prince. I was, to my surprise, well received and supported by everyone I worked with. From my team-mates to members of other teams, from recruiters to senior management I was given a grand welcome.



Also, I was assigned a very exciting project and was given enough resources to execute the project. I have interned in many other places and none of them ranks when compared to Goldman Sachs.


Advice to Management

It would be helpful if interns had a sense of what projects they will work on during the summer long before the internship starts or some information on the technologies and areas to focus on before the start of the internship. Also, there needs to be better branding of the organization as a place to be for students looking for jobs/internships. Increase in compensation will also aid in this regard.

A must do even though you've decided to go to the buy side.
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

They gave me real projects that the results are being used right now!


Downers

The community team work was mandatory for the interns. I don't like that because some of the interns were reluctant to help.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be proactive and make good relationship with junior guys. They are extremely helpful like all the others, and also, they have more time for you. In addition, get things done!

A summer like no other
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Great networking opportunities, learning opportunities from the best in the industry, rotational program gives more optionality.


Downers

A lot of emphasis is placed on how outgoing the intern is- candidates cannot be shy.


Advice to Potential Interns

Goldman is a great place to work for sales and trading, but you must be willing to put in a minimum of 12 hours a day, and must be willing to spend time networking as well as just doing work. Good time management and project management are key skills for success.
