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.

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.

Engaging and Challenging Internship Experience that Concludes with Presentation to Senior Mangement
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Excellent exposure to senior management and proprietary research. Top-notch organization and professionalism from human capital management.


Downers

Competitive and challenging work environment leads to long working hours.


Advice to Potential Interns

Goldman Sachs does a very good job of rewarding their employees for their hard work. If you're willing to put in the hours and are truly interested, you'll get a lot out of the internship.


Sample Interview Questions

Walk over your resume. What would you do if you were suddenly given $100,000 to invest? What was one class that you got a B in, and what did you find challenging about that class?


Advice to Management

The only real issue I witnessed was a low retention of junior employees. Many junior analysts leave after 2-3 years.
