    Pros

    You get to say you work at Goldman Sachs, which, for people who don't know technology, might mean something good They encourage internal mobility.

    Cons

    You will be building tools for business users who treat you very poorly and have unreasonable expectations. Technology in some divisions is very underfunded which results in too much work and small/non-existent bonuses. Everybody is smart, but depending on the team, they have little interest in helping you learn and grow. Working here sets you up to continue working at banks in the future, which is not very... promising.
