Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management always impressive but some heads of teams lack people management skills and appear at times to have been promoted for their commercial impact and not their leadership skills

    Goldman Sachs - A great place to work

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs

    Pros

    I work with some of the smartest people in the world. Everyone is 100% dedicated at GS. Additionally, the level of communication is outstanding with everyone knowing what's going on at any one time. We tend to have a lot of meetings which can be viewed as negative (analysis paralysis some might say), but I find it very helpful. Everyone gets involved in the approval process this way, and everyone's voice is heard. The flattened hierarchy at GS avoids all the beauracracy and people can get down to work without worrying about the "proper" chain of command. And lastly, the technical systems that have been built by in-house GS personnel are some of the most advanced and useful pieces of software in the industry.

    Cons

    Nothing really important that would warrant a comment.

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The office was composed of very smart and ambitious people. You are given the opportunity to contribute from day one, the learning curve is quite steep but team members are very supportive and willing to teach. Flat corporate structure where even interns have access to VP's and Managing Directors.

    Cons

    Far away from NY.
