People; Goldman is justified in emphasizing and taking pride in their people. I met some of the most talented and nicest people in my group!

Best possible experience through exposure to multiple facets of the Securities division at a large bank
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Exposure to different roles within the division, culture of the workplace, access to senior level people, enjoyed getting to meet/spending time with everyone, very determined to find you a role within the firm. It was incredible that every intern was hired at the end of the summer, two of which in roles that they did not anticipate hiring for.


Downers

very little...only problem was that as an intern, you can do limited "real analyst work" in Sales & Trading since it requires certain licenses. this was not a surprise though.


Advice to Potential Interns

Get to know everyone you can in the office, and attempt to create strong relationships with a few people. Once you do this, people will be willing to go out of their way to help create a position.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about what is going on in the markets right now? What happens if the Fed suddenly raises interest rates? What do you like to do for fun that is not sports/school/work related? Why are you prepared for this role as an intern here? Tell me about your interest in this firm/division.


Advice to Management

More training specific to Sales & Trading would have been beneficial for us during the first week in NY.

Work hard, learn a lot, and have a great time.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.

Because of amazing people and a fantastic company who invested in my succes, I learned more in 10 weeks than I have in my college career
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


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 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.
