An organization that pays you well but also squeezes time out of your life. No work life balance at all due to super long working hours. A normal working day is always 12+ hours and without any extra pay for the hours churned at work.
Pros
Yearly bonus, lots of learning opportunities
Cons
Long working hours, gossip culture

Work Is bit stressed as my team was handling with the Transaction department. I would say Job security will be great only if you are or become permanent employee of GS.. and it's not really easy for a contractor to get converted to GS employee compared to other IT companies.
Pros
Good Salary package and also the management
Cons
No job security for contract workers

Enjoyed my previous stint of 6 Years at Goldman Sachs, it was nice working in a global environment where the teams are expanded across 3 regions. That experience is fairly exiting and thoroughly enjoyed those years.
Pros
Great Team
Cons
Leadership challenges.

Comfortable to commute to the workplace as provided with door pick up and drop. A lot of cross-functional meets and interactions which helps in learning. Friendly Management can reach out to them for both personal and professional. Best id your given a mentor to help you with any kind of doubts as growing in the organization.Excellent culture as you can wear comfortable business casuals and culture of logging in from anywhere in the campus and believe in completing the tasks. The work-life balance initially feels a bit difficult but later with the help of the management it is achievable.

Do not join if you’re a lateral hire. Your prior experience will be zeroed out as if it did not exist. It is a political backstabbing culture. If you are keen on learning more join other investment banks
Pros
Good pay
Cons

GS has been a life changing platform which not only gives opportunities to learn and grow but also exposure into so much more that's enough to make one self sufficient.
