Goldman Sachs – The shining beacon of Wall Street (for MBA grads)

Amazingly, this BWeek article says, get this….people, especially MBA grads, still want to work for Goldman Sachs! Rubbish, you say? Ridiculous? Preposterous? Diabolical? Apparently not. Goldman is still attracting MBA grads in pre-crash numbers, which can’t really come as a surprise to anyone in the financial community. There are many things that draw people to Goldman, such as:

1. High Compensation

2. Work with the “smartest people on the Street”

3. High Compensation

4. Be a part of the Goldman conspiracy to slowly take over all US government positions

5. High Compensation

6. The opportunity to laugh at other, 2nd tier bankers while at your 3-martini lunch at San Pietro’s

Lastly, I am pretty sure that Goldman compensates its top employees well, so I would add high compensation to the list.

In all seriousness, Goldman is (at least perceived to be) the best at what they do on Wall Street. Having the Goldman name on your resume is the equivalent of a “work anywhere you want card.” Goldman does also have great connections with the US government, so if you aspire to do more than make it rain at the club with models and bottles, you can join the government and shape the future of our country. Again, Goldman does compensate people very well, so it is only rational that people with $150k in debts would want to collect some coin from the the money machine that is Goldman Sachs. If Lloyd Blankfein went on national television, cursed off Jim Cramer and defecated on the set of “Mad Money,” people would still want to work at Goldman…So give the article a read and see if you agree with the reasons that these people want to work at Goldman.
