Great culture, Great people

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Goldman hires the smartest people and that is very obvious in daily interactions if you come from another bank or move to another job. Support functions are the best I have seen and they know what they are doing/talking about as opposed to some other places. IT systems are best in class. One of the best culture I have come across with people/managers genuinely trying to help develop you. The worst thing you can say in Goldman is that the person/behavior was "Un-Goldman like." Communication skills of the employees are a cut above the rest.

Good first job

Good brand name. It broadly opens your career opportunities. You feel privilege working in GS at the beginning, but gradually realized Technology is still back-office. Support / On-call work is heavy. You have to be comfortable to use internal tools instead of open-source and trending frameworks. Managers are very supportive. The team recognizes people who go extra miles. It's interesting that some people will leave within just one or two years and some Executives / MDs may have been staying for 10+ years.

Good diverse and work life balanced culture

People tend to think the company as hard working and tough and it is true. However the culture inside the company is well-balanced and give you opportunity as long as you ask for it.

Review

To start here in your career is great as it builds a lot of soft skills as well as you meet and learn from bright people. Its competitive and can be long hours but you learn a lot and you work with some of the most driven and smartest people.

Smart peers, goal-driven plan

It's an ideal place for junior level roles, but it will require way more energy and efforts if you really want to climb the corporate ranks.

Great place to work

Company has a strong teamwork culture. Management expectations are high and its an environment that recognises people who take the initiative to lead change.

Sharp learning curve & poor work/life balance

- Fun to work with high-caliber professionals - Relatively poor work/life balance - Rampant office politics - Low retention rate - Flat organisational structure; easy to approach senior-level executives

Privilege to work in one of the best Financial Bank in the world

Great company to work and you feel very privilage working in one of the best Financial Bank in the U.S. Managers are very understanding with my work-life balance that I can set-up a time that I can report for work to accomodate my child's schedule in school. Promotion was very quick that I became an Analyst to Associate within 3 years. You will be given very challenging role and projects!

Pros

Challenging, growth opportunity, interesting work

Cons

Low pay

great culture to learn and grow

everyone is keen to learn and grow. More importantly, every one is keen to help others to grow. Mangers are open-minded and willing to offer opportunity for internal mobility within the team/region/global regions.

Cons

long hours

Good experience

I was hired from campus as a operations analyst in treasury and accounting services department, managed firm cash and balance sheet accounts to make sure the daily in/out flow of cash was accurately booked and discrepancies are cleared.
