Ongoing Career Growth
Regardless of which area or business you join, the associate role is a key pipeline for leadership positions. Because Goldman Sachs has a flat organizational structure, it is difficult to identify a typical career path. However, if you’re looking for a new challenge or the opportunity to explore a different business at the firm, we offer a formal mobility process that many of our associates take advantage of.
We created Goldman Sachs University to help you at each stage of your career. New associates often participate in a 10-week induction and training program. We develop programs in a variety of innovative and challenging formats to guide you through your career. Our personalized curriculums are designed to help you find courses for different stages of your career.
Associates are formally evaluated as part of the firm’s annual Performance Review Process, which includes a self assessment as well as input from peers, managers and internal business partners. You will also participate in the Personal Development Planning process. Based on formal and informal feedback and your individual interests, this process helps you to establish your career goals and identify developmental opportunities within the firm.
