Что значит быть партнером в Голдман Сакс.

Вот такая непростая жизнь у самых что ни на есть счастливых и богатых. Многочасовая работа, долгая карьера, к моменту расцвета которой у человека уже не остается других желаний, кроме как работать ради работы. Он попросту разучивается делать что-либо другое.

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

My Title: Partner Managing Director

Time served: I have been with Goldman now for 17 years. I have been a partner for eight years.

Compensation: I have seen the good times and the bad. I used to take home a lot more money but now I make 5-6 mil annually (including bonus) not a small chunk of change by any stretch but when the market was roaring before the mortgage meltdown the take home pay was far greater.

My hours: I work about 55 hours a week. I have many others to do my grunt work.

What I do? Make sure my unit continues generating revenue for the firm. I travel to seek out new business, work my contacts, etc.

My life: I have a wife, two kids, live in Greenwich, have couple of cars and bells and whistles.

Stress: The stress is incredible. The money is great but the mental and physical toll it takes on your body over the years isn't (putting on weight, grey hairs, not being able to watch all my kids soccer games, going to recitals, less time with family, arguments at home, etc)

11-21-12 Edits below: Let me address some of the comments. I am used to being on the hot seat, so those individuals who want to take pot shots at me for working at GS I am not phased. I have provided my experience and how I conduct myself. GS helps many companies (public and private), clients, and countries in many facets, but that was not the question.

Regarding my hours, I work 55 hours a week currently. As I was climbing the ranks it was 60-80 hours a week was the norm as still is.

Why I still do it? What keeps me motivated? I am damn good at what I do, the people, and I enjoy it. The people that I work with keep me motivated. Without them I am nothing and they teach me new things on a daily basis which I am grateful for. I empower them to make decisions, lead by example, and surround themselves with individuals who do not adhere to the status quo.

I am grooming many of them to be leaders be it in this organization or elsewhere and I want them to surpass what I have done. It is exciting for me to see them grow as many have been with me for a number of years.

Why dont I retire? So what, I can stay at home and argue with my wife?...(sarcasm).

What will I do once I leave GS? I do some philanthropic work now, so when I leave the finance world for good, I will devote all my time helping a few non-profits.

11-22-12 Edit: Chris Burkhard typing from his ass. We don't magically make 7-8 figure salaries we put in our dues. What I do is not rocket science but it requires skills, business acumen and pedigree. Employees are educated, taught, mentored, as they come up the ranks.

Below is a rough ranking system, there may be some nuances:

Analyst- bottom of the barrel. Must put in 3-4 years to move up to the next level
Associate- Must put in 3 years and usually have MBA
VP- variable
SVP-variable
Director-variable
Managing Director-variable
Partner (Partner Managing Director) - cream of the crop.
