IN these dire times, should I risk making a move? Saw in the paper yesterday that GS employees should expect a pay cut of more than 50% in Q4. Thanks M
Go for it. These are the times.
Is it not VERY risky. COnsidering it’s a rolling contract and its at an IB (even if it is GS)
Some motivation why I should stay: Enjoy my current job. Great team. Learning something new every day. However, do not like dealing with clients… May be a risky move going into job at IB Why should I move to GS: Name Name Name Experience …? Have any of you experience of working at GS before?
Have any of you got any info on Tactical Research Group (TRG) within GS? That is, how much at risk is this department to cutting of jobs?
