The access to senior leadership, approachability of employees, overall investment in your success across the board from analyst to partner

Downers

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fires. I wouldn't go anywhere else for the training and opportunities Goldman Sachs provides.

Loved the people by whom I was surrounded - high quality and really care about both each other and the mission.

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.

The people that I worked with - all spent time teaching me something new.

Downers

At times, the hours were tough. But that's part of the job description, and that experience taught me a lot.

Advice to Potential Interns

Join a firm that is willing to invest in you. This is one of them - if you do well you'll have the options to move around through the mobility program - something that opens up more doors than you can ever imagine.

Advice to Management

Focus more on work-related training. General finance knowledge isn't bad - but doing things we do on the job is more useful.

I learned a lot, worked with great people, got paid well, found the work interesting, and am excited to go back.
