    Pros

    The name Goldman Sachs on your resume.

    Cons

    Operations at GS is nothing more than clicking buttons and processing all day for 12 hours a day. I have seen very intelligent people leave the firm because there simply is nothing rewarding about it. The culture in operations reflects the job. People are constantly stressed out with no work life balance with far from positive culture. It is common to hear people joke about "jumping off of a cliff".

    Advice to Management

    Automate repetitive tasks and invest in tech instead of spending more money hiring over qualified people to process all day and eventually leave. Senior level leaders need to step in to create a culture that positive. Everyone seems to have adopted the mindset that "everything sucks, it will never get better"
