I'm currently a junior at a non-target and am in the process of doing a ton of networking in preparation for the upcoming full-time recruiting process (IB). I'm currently interning at a PE firm in NYC and some guys I work under have generously offered to give me introductions to some people in their network. One of the places that I've been recommended to is GS which is awesome but, as you can tell by the name of this post, I have one concern.
I've had a few people (some reliable, some not) tell me that GS doesn't pay as much as other banks since the name of Goldman Sachs is so valuable that people won't mind coming to work for them for less money. Has anyone heard this as well? Do other banks do this, or is GS the only one that can really get away with it? I know this is sort of irrelevant since if I get an offer from them, I'm most likely going to accept it (which may be me unintentionally answering my own question).
