Goldman Private Wealth - Summer analyst

guts's picture
Rank: Senior Orangutan | 400

1) I am a 2nd year, and I was wondering how well being a summer analyst at GS in PWM would be looked upon. I know that private wealth management is looked down upon, but it is Goldman Sachs and it is a formal summer internship ( and the PWM group is located just a floor above IBD so I would probably see them sometimes.

2) Also, I have been invited to a "superday" for Goldman's PWM. It last from early morning till afternoon. Any idea what will go on during this timeframe? Multiple 30 minute interviews? Lunch provided (I hope?)

3) I am also considering working in the finance departments of Fortune 500s for the summer (Think Yahoo, Intel, and such). How would that look compared to PWM?

Goldman private wealth for your sophomore summer would be pretty solid.

but if you want to do ib later on, experience in corp fin now will definitely help

Haha, funny that you're asking about lunch. I interviewed with them from about 10am until 2 or 3pm (had 5 or 6 back to back interviews) and got no lunch!! I was like, oh come on Goldman, you can do better than that...

i was invited to the superday as well but i turned it down, because i already had an offer from Deutsche Bank sales and trading. But GS PWM is great, but in my honest opinion, if you want to do banking after, then corp. finance is stronger, because interviewers don't care very little about the name. They care more about what you learnt.
