    I worked at Goldman Sachs for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to top deals / transactions. Learned a lot in only 10 weeks.

    Cons

    Long hours. Definitely more hierarchy than they claim but GS people are among the best you can ask for in banking

    Pros

    You are working for and with the best of the best. Experience from here, and you can get a job anywhere.

    Cons

    Minimum 80-100 hours a week. Based on how much sleep you need, you get around 19-30 hours of free time for everything each week (barely anything).
