Goldman Sachs is where potential is realized. And careers are made.

People create success, which is why we go to great lengths to attract, inspire and reward creativity and talent. As a global business, our people come from all over the world and represent different nationalities, educational backgrounds and life experiences. We welcome their unique perspectives, their energy and ideas and their willingness to learn as well as to teach. A commitment to integrity, team work and the pursuit of excellence is at the core of everything we do. As with so many who have come before us, we believe you will find at Goldman Sachs some of the richest opportunities and most interesting challenges of your life.

At Goldman Sachs, success without integrity is failure. Goldman Sachs’ culture reflects more than a structure. It is a statement of values. Our commitment to integrity, teamwork, excellence, meritocracy and innovation enables us to build our relationships, with clients and with colleagues, on honesty and trust.

Our values inspire us to give back to the community through volunteerism, philanthropy, scholarships and outreach. Each of us in the firm takes pride in our role as a steward of the Goldman Sachs legacy. We understand that our assets are our people, capital and reputation. If any of these is ever diminished, the last is the most difficult to restore.

Training and future prospects

Our analyst program will allow you to explore our business and work with clients, contributing greatly to their success. Because Goldman Sachs is a relatively flat organization, there’s no one particular career path that a new analyst follows.

The breadth and depth of our firm provide you with a host of opportunities beyond the analyst position. Our formal mobility process encourages you to explore these opportunities, both within and outside of your division and office location.

Top faculty from both inside and outside the firm teach our programs. Our professional skills curriculum will help you develop and refine the skills most important to your commercial performance. Course topics cover a wide variety of skills, including sales and client relationships, presentations, negotiations, time management and business writing.

Having a strong pipeline of future leaders is critical to the firm’s ongoing success.We offer opportunities for leadership development at every level: from entry level employees to experienced Managing Directors. Our curriculum is based on the latest theories from leading authors and management professionals. Each course is designed with the Goldman Sachs environment - and the challenges our leaders face - in mind.

Being a global firm means that our people and our clients come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Our goal is to prepare our people to work more effectively in an increasingly diverse, multicultural business environment.
