I learned more here in 10 weeks than in most classes!
Jersey City, NJ | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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!


Would You Recommend

Yes

Got to work on an 8 week M&A process - more experience in two month than what most get out of 4 years.
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing learning and productive experience.
Jersey City, NJ | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The fact that everyone at the firm was so open to talk to and everyone was more than willing to help me learn and grow. They really invest in helping you shape your career and become better overall. Great feedback sessions. Great team and culture.


Downers

It could have been longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great culture. Very invested in helping you grow.


Sample Interview Questions

Coding thought process questions. Behavioral questions.


Advice to Management

Promotion policies could be improved. Also, they could work on improving compensations to match tech companies.


Would You Recommend

Yes

...
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

People who are very fun to work with and who care about your personal development - gives you as much responsibility as you can handle

Staffer who cares about your experience and what you want to try

Fun deals spanning across various sectors

Going to meetings (client and drafting sessions), listening on calls


Downers

Wished I was able to get more exposure to modeling, but I think that could have changed if I stated my interest in doing so in the beginning of my internship


Advice to Potential Interns

Think about what you really want from your experience, if you are interested in banking, technology, and a great culture, I truly think Goldman SF is the best place to pursue them


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.
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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.
