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

    Pros

    Working in the finance department is a good place to learn how to operate in a large company with multiple divisions. If you work hard you will receive significant responsibility. Internal mobility is difficult but possible, if you work hard and network you can move across divisions.

    Cons

    Work tends to be process based rather than true problem solving. The company is large and therefore has its fair share of politics. There is a significant push for diversity, which I believe is important, but the effort has come at the cost of hiring less qualified candidates. Face time still exists, there is shaming for leaving earlier than others even if there is no more work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire diverse Analyst classes but keep the same standard for all candidates.
