Hey all. Didn’t know where to put this, figured this might be a good place. Have an interview on Monday with Goldman Sachs for a Global Banking & Markets Operations division. VP role in NYC. Anybody at GS: is this a good area to be in? The GB&M division that is. Any helpful tips that helped you all get your job especially if you’re at a VP level? Anything I should drive home during my interview? Just starting my studying and research for the interview so any tips or advice is appreciated.

It's pretty good I'd say, with the people I've interacted from GS - I feel like it's a blend of personable but sharp, someone who is super analytical and thinks ahead. What kind of experiences do you think you could share in the interview? What made you REALLY good at your role?

The GBM division is the best place to be in GS - IBD and Trading are what made GS what it is. Having said that, please be aware that anyone who's not an investment banker or a trader is support staff as far as GS is concerned so your conp, growth opportunities and general experience at GS will reiterate this point over and over.

I know 3 people in/were GS. 2 hated it left and 1 remains. The one there is pretty high up, while other 2 were VP level. They are 5 days in office and all 3 said it's long hours. 2 said they had bad bosses, 1 likes their boss.
So basically, just like any other place, a mix of reviews, lol!

Hi everyone,

I'm going for a role for Account Director and have gone through the interviews with the head of accounts, BD as well as the ECD's. I received the following email at the end of the day:

"You are one of two candidates in the final round.

One thing we haven’t spoken about are your salary expectations. Could you have a think and let me know early next week as well as your employment status (residency permit)."

What would be the best way to answer this response? Appreciate the help
