GOLDMAN SACHS MEMO: RESPONSE TO TODAY’S NEW YORK TIMES OP-ED - Bloomberg
But that does not and should not represent our firm of more than 30,000 people.
then further down the article
For the group of nearly 12,000 vice presidents, of which the author of today’s commentary was, that number was similarly high.

Speaking of high numbers, vice presidents/employees = 12,000/30,000 or 40%. :shock: Talk about title inflation!

IIRC when I was still dealing with Merrill Lynch here in Mtl years ago, almost all their sales staff were VPs.
