      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Goldman Sachs

      Pros

      Exposure to brilliant people and global businesses. Great learning opportunities.

      Cons

      Salt Lake Office gets over worked and under paid. Very high turnover -many leave to pursue positions at neighboring institutions that pay more and have less stress.

      Pros

      Great place to work with a great expectation and emphasis on superior performance. As long as your expectations are aligned, the experience will be rewarding.

      Cons

      Tech and automation disrupting every inch of financial services. From the front office to the back office. Macro outlook of total industry impact is still uncertain.

        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        There are no slackers here, they just don't last. It can be a very rewarding place to work, with so many smart people. Everyone pulls in the same direction and it's a very collective environment.

        Cons

        The forced quartiling of staff is frankly 1980s MBA strategy and needs to end. While the firm is committed to diversity there is a lot more to be achieved in this space. The firm is incredibly hard charging and over the long run that can get challenging, particularly when children and partners enter lives.

        Advice to Management

        Drop the quartiling process - I've never met a manager who agreed with it yet.....
