Zero Work Life Balance

Within few days of joining GS I understood I made a big mistake joining this firm. People are arrogant here and there is too much of politics and favourism. The only positive here is Salary and Bonus, if you are ready to slog 14hrs/day then GS is the place for you.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Long Hours

It’s a political nightmare

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

Challenging

Hard place to survive but good for few years experience. Technical learning is almost absent but project management is a plus. Overall need to be very aggressive and political to merge into the culture.

Pros

Can aim for good pay

Cons

Long hours to do bad work.

Everyday is a new beginning

Goldman Sachs always recruits open minded about who can encourage and carry forward Goldman’s inclusive culture. This makes every day at work a new challenge which ensure you are always ready to deliver your creative best each day managing complex demands from both external & internal clients. My day starts during the drive to work on my BlackBerry. Looking through emails from the day before to see if global counterparts had reached out for. At work each minute is precious once all regions are online. Queries & its complexities evolve every day so there is nothing that is taken for granted. Investigation and interpreting information becomes a major part of what my team does. Managing optimum utilization of resources, multitasking, involvement strategic projects and ensuring its progress, bench marking performance and most importantly Management Reporting are every day tasks. My team is a diverse pool of people from different backgrounds who add value to the overall accomplishments of the division. Bright, energetic & creative bunch. My Management team fits this description of those who make a bit more effort keeping the best interests of clients in mind, nicer to deal with, tolerant towards those they don't readily identify with and always committed to doing the right thing. Long work weeks and unforgiving hours at times may be seen as a negative but my learning has been that this environment makes you gauge my best qualities and also the same within the people I manage based on the responsibilities each one has. That said, working remotely is an key option - 

Pros

Open door policy

Cons

Job Security
