GS Experience

Through a holistic framework called the GS Experience, you will be introduced to the firm’s heritage and culture and have an opportunity to develop a robust, transferable skillset. Prior to joining the firm, you will build a strong foundation and elevate your technical expertise through an online learning platform, Jumpstart Your Learning. Upon joining, you will participate in firmwide and division-specific orientation programs and networking opportunities to support your continued professional development. A multi-channel experience builds upon orientation and addresses your individual needs, interests and business acumen. Beyond formal education, programs are offered that support continuous learning. As a new analyst, you will also have opportunities to connect and collaborate with colleagues across the firm, as well as meaningful access to thought-leaders through an active sponsorship model. Throughout your onboarding and integration, senior leadership will also play a critical role in providing guidance and mentorship to help you succeed. 


As a new analyst, you will begin your career with a comprehensive training program to help teach or refresh your knowledge about financial and marketing tools. Our training emphasizes on-the-job learning complemented by formal instruction.

Our Analyst Program offers exposure to a broad array of financial and analytical concepts. Analysts work on finance and acquisition related activities when investments are made or when portfolio companies are harvested. They also participate in strategic, operational and value creation processes, and the monitoring of related work streams alongside our portfolio companies over the life of our investments. Analysts often find themselves working alongside senior management of the division, as well as with a wide variety of professionals in other areas of the firm.
