Uppers

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.

the people!! the structure of the program and all of the opportunities that it offered.

Downers

Personally, I could have taken on a lot more work (though I know that was not the case for most other interns).

Advice to Potential Interns

There tends to be a lot of negative ideas about Goldman Sachs out there, but I was SOOOO pleasantly surprised by my experience. So, don't judge them or the people who work there by things you may hear.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time you failed. Who is the CEO?

Advice to Management

Make sure to assign enough work to interns to keep them busy for the long hours they work!

The culture at Goldman is great. I learned so much and everyone was very helpful in getting me up to speed on finance concepts.

Downers

The hours were long, but it wasn't more than I expected.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is a lot of work, but rewarding if you put in the time and effort. You don't need to know much about finance coming into the internship, but it is expected that you will do additional work to get up to speed.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Fulfilling. I learned a lot and felt I contributed to the team.
