    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time

    Pros

    the best part about working in my division with the bank, are the people! (The people I work with) it’s truly a unique place. Our management definitely make effort to motivate and encourage us everyday to ensure that we all know that we are evidently ONE team no matter your role or position you matter!

    Cons

    Since this is still a start division of GS there are going to be some areas of improvement just like any start up. However for it to be a new company of GS we are ahead of the game in every area, and growing rapidly!
