HAHAHAHA!!! Brilliant!

I turned down GS tech a few years ago. I interviewed with some folks in analytics at another firm who seemed really passionate about their work. When I got to GS, my interviewers looked tired, frazzled, and disinterested in programming and product pricing.

I took the other offer and it was probably one of the best decisions I've made in my career.

That's because your offer was GS Tech, aka. Back office. In that sense, yes turning down tech/ops isn't a big deal. You would be crazy not to accept a GS front office role. (unless it's a PE buy-side offer)

GS isn't the be all and end all. I can't believe you're so narrowminded as to say someone would be crazy to decline a front office GS role. I didn't even apply to GS when I was a senior in college; I had no interest in working 90+ hour weeks doing menial bitch work.

I think the Janitorial Back Office Division at Goldman Sachs is top notch.

Obvi go with GS Tech Support. Sure it might not be IBD, but you'll be working in a culture of excellence.

I hope this is a joke, your that Lloyd has a gun to your head.

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee

WSO is not your personal search function.

OMG YOU DIDN't APPLY TO GS CUZ YOU COULDN'T HANDLE 90 HOUR WEEKS OMG THAT MUST MEAN GS SUX!
WELL U KNW WHAT, I DDNT APPLY HARVARD CUZ I THOUGHT THE IVY LEAGUE WAS OVERRATED. BASED ON UR REASONING DOES THAT MEAN HARVARD SUX??

GS doesn't suck. It is just a company. Some people don't want to work there, some do. Why does GS make everyone so upset. You would think a person who didn't want to work at GS insulted someone's mother with the reactions people have. It is Goldman Sachs....RELAX. Some people don't have them on a pedestal.
