Current Employee - Director

I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The pay, benefits, the people and culture

Cons

Non everything is great. Worklife balance is an issue but when you sign into goldman you know what you are getting yourself into.

Advice to Management

Current Employee - Consultant

I have been working at FactSet full-time

Pros

FactSet offers very exciting technologies to clients, and offers invaluable experience in a client-facing role. If you’ve just begun a career, I can imagine no better place to receive support in the... financial industry. Great training program, you will basically be getting paid for the first 6 months to learn to communicate effectively and gain industry knowledge. Even though I’m in consulting, I recently had the chance to develop an application with some of FactSet’s APIs in the API-Athon. I felt encouraged to push myself in a positive way. Work life balance is encouraged

Cons

There can be a stigma attached to decisions made by management, but this has improved because management have listened to feedback. Management have less tools to retain valuable employees which can... be a shame, as it has meant that competition were able to poach more successfully.

Advice to Management

No advice, they’re doing great
