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.

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.
