Receptionist (Former Employee) – London, UK – 7 March 2017
Working in the busy Investment Banking Division of Goldman Sachs as their evening receptionist/secretary, involved me checking in with each assistance/secretary before they would leave for the evening They would inform me of priorities, which would includes booking flights for bankers and company partners, operating the computerized multi-function switchboard, on occasion became overwhelming. Greeting clients and being a source of knowledge and information to support staff and clients really inspired me. I enjoyed having my own work space and felt great respect from all associates.

Business Analyst (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 18 January 2017
Whilst GS has great number of smart and motivated people, the firm is not good at rewarding people based on the work input and performance. This firm gives me an impression that value of diligence and hard-working is not appreciated. This place also lacks transparency in decision-making; delegation and decision making is purely done at senior management level without incorporating feedback from people at lower level regardless of abundance in knowledge.
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 8 January 2017
The culture at GS is great. Everyone wants the best outcome and will help you to get it. The hours are manageable and it is very fast pace. You are given the freedom to express ways in making efficiencies.

Typesetter (Former Employee) – London – 21 September 2016
Making sure that all document were produced ontime to very tight deadlines. This included time sensitive documents for our webpage that needed to be kept up to date as well as weekly/monthly/yearly publications.
Dealing with printers to get documents cleared for printing.
Keeping client database uptodate and sending out of all documents. Also helped to produce presentations.
I worked as part of a team to produce the documents and run the office, but also took on the training needs when new people joined the team.
I did not find this job hard as had trained for quite a few years to keep my skills uptodate.
The most enjoyable part was receiving the printed copy knowing that I had helped to produce a quality document to send out to clients.

GS is a very pleasant environment to work in. The company really does put its employees forward and looks after them. Co-workers are really helpful and patient from department to department. Although I work in a small department, by getting along with other departments I have managed to learn the Infrastructure of the company.

Graphic Design (Current Employee) – London – 4 April 2016
Get advertisement from client and transform or adapt it into a new banner to be displayed internally, also rebranding and development of new concepts. This position helped me to improve my composition skills, working with very tight deadlines, great work generated by discussing ideas, presenting suggestion and taking criticism. The hardest part of the job was the lack of imaginary for reference and sometimes lack of final vision, but there is where the most enjoyable part come from. When you start a new concept and together build it to become a new identity.
