Its generally busy day, I have learned a lot about posting, networking, open culture. My role involves signing transaction document on behalf of company with external client which is very risky part of my job.

Competitive work environment

GS is a dynamic work place where people are very competitive and the possibilities for growth are tremendous. Work life balance does not exist. Pay is good..

Reputed Investment Bank with long working hours

Majority of employees are from Ivy league institutes, very competitive culture with focus on quality of product. Working hours are crazy and the management is very demanding and ambitious in terms of deadlines. However great learning exposure and if you are willing to go beyond your work duties, the senior manager does acknowledge hard work and would adequately reward you.

Stressful work environment

Fast paced work environment, good for a few years but stressful work environment not sustainable for long term. Good brand to be associated with. Company invests a lot for cultural and inclusion activities

A good place to start a career

1. There is no work life balance and are expected to work for 12-13 hrs 2. Management needs to be a lot more better at managing people within the team (depends on which team you are in)


A great place to give a kick start to your career


Lack of work life balance
