Amazing Office, Good Culture
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaJuly 11, 2019
Goldman Sachs is a great place to work. However like any organisation it has its Pros and Cons.

The company has an amazing office and hires the best of people for the job, with rigorous interview processes in place. You will be surrounded by the best of people.

However, being a 150 year old company, most of the processes are already tried and test hence there is minimum room for experimentation. At times you may feel stuck doing the same task repetitively.
Pros
Smart People
Cons
Long Hours, Stagnation of learning

Aggressive production & little fun at work place
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bangalore, KarnatakaJuly 11, 2019
You will tend to work for 10 hours which is daily working hours.However, if you utilize your time well then you may not have to extend.The nature of work is very aggressive because you will have to be on your toes through 10 hours. If you want to grow in this company it is very important to have networking., otherwise it is very tough to grow in such an organisation.
Pros
cab
Cons
Long working hours

Always need to think over and above for the client. Flexible work timings to accommodate work life balance. No overtime as the teams are required to only work for 10hours.

Traditional tedious office ethos
Summer Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaMarch 12, 2019
Typical day at work started from 12 noon, extending till the 10 PM, sometimes midnight. Claustrophobic office space is an issue as well as the work load which is quite taxing. It is a big challenge to keep up with the pace at GS, not necessarily the most rewarding in terms of pleasure though.

Best start after graduation
Analyst - Systematic Market Making FICC (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaFebruary 14, 2019
Worked for about 10 hours a day.
Started with a 1 month training programme in New York.
Being an engineering graduate, we were taught basics of financial markets.
People here love working. A lot of people voluntarily stay for long hours (decreases productivity though).

Challenging but stagnant

A good challenging work place to be in. Can get stagnant and monotonous at times. More emphasis on networking for career advancement. Management can get a little too clingy and possessive at times.
Pros
Massive Bonus for good performers
Cons
Long Hours
