Amazon vs Goldman Sachs: Entry Level

Nov 23, 2019 16 Comments

Hi yall, heres yet another Amazon vs Goldman but this time, new-grad edition. I genuinely like the work more at GS because I would be on Apple Card there, but Amazon is big too.

Team with Amazon is AWS Route 53, and team for GS is Marcus.

I know both are going to be tough on WLB, but for being 21 i can suffer and not be tired just yet. I honestly think both are cool so this is tough for me.

Thanks!

      Marcus is their cash cow, so it seems like to team to be in. From what I saw I was really interested in the work. They have nice desks and a view too

    Amazon is bottom of the tech barrel. But Goldman is a totally weak option, so this is a no brainer

      Like any other risky growing company - volatile. Maybe you should stick to sales, you clearly confuse career growth with short term TC issues

      Lol thanks for coming into a post and providing absolutely nothing useful. Youve succeeded in wasting everyone’s time.

    Choose amazon and if you want to stay in New York just ask for a team in New York

    NYC kicks ass, and I know some really smart FBNY people that came from GS. If you like it more, go for it!

      I think this surprises a lot of people in tech. There are some really good engineers there.
