Goldman Sachs Chicago Office

Saw a few roles recently at the GS Chicago office. I've been thinking about making a move back to the midwest for a few reasons and wanted to get the forum's views on the GS Chicago office.

Curious about the groups here, how much of their deal execution they run out of where or if it's a "pitch and ditch" type satellite office. 

Really interested in people, culture and type of work. Looking at the Industrials group more specifically.

Thanks in advance!

I think industrials is the only group. Not sure if they got rid of fig.

EBITduhhh, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Got it, looking at LinkedIn it seems there's a decent consumer / retail there too, but the roles I was seeing were all Industrials so your response being for Ind is helpful

Any idea about the deal flow, quality of assignments? Or does it all get shipped to NYC and Chi ends up doing just books/pitches?
