Hey everyone, I am a current rising college senior coming from a no target school. Since my sophomore year, I’ve wanted to work at Goldman Sachs. Now that the applications are almost open for next year’s new analyst roles. I’m really interested in applying in their internal audit and risk division. Has anyone ever interviewed with GS or done their hirevue? I would love to hear some tips on how I can boost my chance of getting interviewed. Any tips would be greatly appreciated

A recruiter reached out to me for a Program Analyst position at Google. The Job Description seems to require 4 years in consulting, but glassdoor salary for Program Analyst is not at that level at all (only $70-100k/year). Anyone can offer some insights on this position and the associated package? Just wanted to see if I should interview or save everyone's time. Thank you!

Can someone tell me about the “Business Analyst” role at EY? Where I come from analysts and consultants are different animals. I’m a consultant now, but was actively recruited for a “position” at EY. After the initial convo I received an invitation for a formal interview for a business analyst position… Which in my mind is a step down from consultant. Any insight? Also, what’s the culture over there? Weekly hours? Management? It’s flattering that one of the Big4 is after me but is it worth it..

About to leave for a new opportunity, and thinking about exit interviews. I’ve heard that it’s best to keep it diplomatic and maintain good relations long term, but to be honest burn-out, poor WLB, a disappointing enterprise-wide 1st year analyst experience, and a nightmare manager are all reasons why I am leaving. I genuinely want the firm to reflect on this feedback (and other similar feedback from analysts leaving the firm), but understand the risks. Should I just keep quiet, or speak up?

Landed an interview with MBB for a knowledge analyst-aligned role. But I'm concerned that despite being a MBB company w/ 20% higher salary, this may be seen as a step down as I'm currently client facing and the role (as I understand it) would be back office/non-client facing. Is it even worth interviewing if I'm already concerned, or wait until/if I have an offer?
