Investment Management

January 1970

I've worked here for 3 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them and get time with them. Younger men in support roles often challenge/push back on the women they work for in a way that they do not with the men they work for, and management isn't particularly open to hearing this feeedback.

I've worked at Goldman Sachs for close to 12 years in a revenue producing role. I think there are incredible opportunities for women ( and men ) to excel. If you don't have the goods, you won't be successful on Wall Street, no matter if you're male or female.

I worked here over 15 years. The pay is good but the hours are steep, i.e. you pay a price. Everybody is smart so be prepared for a stiff competition. Atmosphere is collegial with men socializing without women, so you need to have confidence to speak out.

I would focus on building out the network. It has been and will always continue to be what will be the key to providing opportunities.

They have pretty good programs for working moms such as on site lactation center, on site backup daycare, flex work arrangements and etc. however people are very demanding and work gets quite stressful so often that you can't really have work-life balance. It's constantly skewed to work if you want to be successful in this company. If you try to have work-life balance here, you will have bard time keeping up with the work load. I manage to leave the office "early" at six o'clock but end up either working my blackberry constantly or log into work at night.

This place is run like a boys club. Men for men about men. Very hard for women to break into male clique and advance in such a work environment.

    Maybe. Depends on the team. Do not be afraid to ask them difficult questions about work-life balance in the interview. If they discount your candidacy because of this, you're probably better off else where.

I've only worked at the company as a consultant for almost six months. The men do not seem as comfortable interacting with me, sharing knowledge, and training me as they do my male counterparts. I also don't really fit in because I'm older than all but a few people in the office. Furthermore, my female manager and her colleague do not seems interested in helping me succeed. They are young mothers who have a fantastic work arrangement and who the company invests a lot into in terms of benefits. I can only guess why these woman are shutting me out from advancement.
