Long hours

Downers

Hard to say from my limited exposure to the firm.

Comments

If you don't know what you want to do, go in undecided and explore. Knock out your GEN ED requirements in things that interest you and get good grades. This will make it easy for you to transfer into a school of interest and succeed.

If you're an intern in the Federation side, it is nearly impossible to transfer to another division.

Quality of Life

- How has the financial industry changed since the crisis?

- What is your greatest strength / weakness?

Admissions

Improve the internal mobility process. It all seemed very arbitrary, and it didn't seem like everyone that attempted to transfer got a fair chance.

Level

It's a fantastic place to work, but make sure you know what division you'd like to be in when you join, because the potential to move around is limited (although it is possible).

Graduation Year

A continual process of learning

once you learned some tasks they become monotonous. However there are plenty of other tasks that are mind-challenging and enriching.

Quality of Life

More diversity in regional offices.

Goldman Sachs invests a lot of resources on their employees, so if you are starting your career in the financial service industry, this firm is the place to learn from the best.

Graduation Year

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.

My project, the team, and talks with management.

Admissions

There is nothing I dislike about the internship.

Level

Great experience, but disappointing internal mobility process

Graduation Year

- You are given real responsibility, and over the course of 10 weeks you can become a valued member of your team

- You learn an incredible amount

- The culture of the firm is very collaborative and you are encouraged to network and meet as many people as possible
