Good environment
What you make of your work is heavily dependent on your team and the people you work with. The best part of working there is that everyone is super competent and you'll be able to learn fast.

Goldman Sachs
I worked two years in Goldman Sachs as an Executive Secretary soon after I got my bachelor of arts and business administration. I worked in the financial control department serving the financial controller as well as all her subordinates. It was a very busy and stressful work environment, however, I enjoyed the working relationship with some of the team members, some of them I am still keeping in touch today.
Pros
Excellent salary and benefits
Cons
My ambition of working in human psychology was not in line with the nature of the business

The best company ever
The best company culture and environment to bring out all your hidden talents and potential. Elitism comes first. You will be proud to identify yourself with Goldman.
If you are a victor, an elite, an aggressive person eager to achieve, Goldman suits you.

work with talented and smart people, great benefits
great work environment people. however junior employees are expected to figure out what to do on their own. not much of a practical training program but a lot of "trainings" that are not really useful...

a place to stretch yourself to grow
Goldman Sachs is a truly global company which provides very inclusive working environment for talents with various background. Working in Goldman could be very stressful and competitive. It also has its very unique posting culture which allows the firm to keep the transparency with all its employees as well as to its clients. Here, you could meet and work with the most capable people and this is the most rewarding experience working for the firm.

環境好
多休息時間,supervisor對我很好,有時候還請我吃小食。同事們非常合作,工作做得很爽快。我學到了不要怕辛苦,不要怕悶,只要做到這兩樣,就能學習更多。工作最困難的是經常要到枱下工作,常常會吸很多灰塵。最喜歡的是那裡的人,團隊合作完成一件事是快樂的事。
Pros
彈性工作時間
Cons
不是經常要上班

Great firm to work with
It was a 10-week intensive internship with Corporate Services Division. GS is a great firm, a lot of intelligent and hardworking people, however, back office staff might feel less valued somehow.

you will be challenged
they hire the best of the best for every role, and the pressure to perform is prevalent everyday. you will be challenged positively, and compensated in positive correlation to your results. this is not a place for the stagnant mind, and you will need to network continuously to survive the politics with constant turnovers
Pros
$$$
Cons
limited work-life balance
