4. Goldman Sachs

top new grad employers

New grads starting at this storied investment bank go through several weeks of in-person training on everything from financial modeling to presentation skills. The education doesn't end there, though. Goldman encourages both formal and informal mentorship programs, and regularly hosts speakers from a variety of industries -- recent big names include Madeleine Albright, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, and entrepreneur Tory Burch.

In addition to top-notch benefits and salaries that are among the highest on Wall Street, Goldman also provides a career path for those who want to stick with the firm long term: 40% of this last year's new managing directors began at Goldman as analysts.

The company also puts an emphasis on philanthropy and giving back, says company spokesman Leslie Shribman. Young employees are encouraged to participate in the new Goldman Sachs Gives Analyst Impact Fund. Launched this spring, the program invites teams of analysts to present proposals to senior leaders on behalf of a charity they've chosen to support. --B.B.
