If you want to get into the finance side at a place like Goldman, you probably need to get into their analyst program. You'll b working 70-100 hours a week--this is not an exaggeration, I know people who have done that. To get into such a program, you need to eithr have good connections, or to take some classes in finance and/or economics.
If you want to stay on the tchnology side, the hours might not be quite so long, but figured 60 hours per week as a norm.
"Liar's Poker" is a good book about Wall St culture.
At the end of the 60hrs/week; you sure will get very good bonus at the end of the year.
