    Pros

    The people are very normal, good gym and good sick pay. Good technical standards and strong ethics. London is very diverse in a very real and meaningful way

    Cons

    the pay is below market standard, no worklife balance, the benefits are good but day to day there is no money spent on employees such as tech, offices etc.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people properly and have a broader sense of what leadership means otherwise all the diversity efforts will not be beneficial

    Pros

    Smart people, dedicated, motivated, decent pay, good benefits. Teamwork an important and continuing ethic that keeps the place together for now.

    Cons

    Long hours, too much office politics, no loyalty to employees, starting to underpay vs peers. Senior management complacent and have been in site for too long now.

    Advice to Management

    GS has lost its identity. We were the best, we now just follow and follow badly. Some bad recent senior hires have had a significant downturn on morale.
