A must do even though you've decided to go to the buy side.


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!

The DREAM internship!


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.

Best Dream Internship


Uppers

The culture, firm, people, projects, work events, opportunities, and ability to move up the corporate ladder.


Downers

Nothing, the internship was a great experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do the best that you can at the interview and in the internship. Do more than what you are asked to do.


Advice to Management

Be paid more in terms of the housing stipend for people that resided outside of the NY/NJ area prior to starting the internship.
