Cut throat and only a meritocracy if you also kiss up too the right people
Associate (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) – Salt Lake City, UT – 2017, október 18.
Goldman is a great place for 2 years but after that you need to leave. They increase your salary 5% each year the first few years then they stop increasing it.
They call it a meritocracy but that's only if you complete your work as well as kiss up to the right people otherwise you will not have a career here.
They say there is work life balance but what they mean is you will work and not have a life. Balance does not exist except that your job is your life so the more you work the more balance you will have.
They claim diversity but that really only exists when it's convenient to them.
They claim they pay you or will eventually pay you but it's full of empty promises.
I've been told every year I'm their highest performer and yet they don't pay, they don't reward, they continue to have empty promises, they move the payment bar further down the road.
In short, come for 2 years if you must but then get the heck out of there!!
Free coffee but it's terrible
Everything is a con, I do not recommend Goldman Sachs
