The perks keep getting eliminated at Goldman Sachs

Posted by WSF On April - 28 - 2008

First there were reports that bottled water and soft drinks were no longer free to Goldman Sachs employees.  Now we hear they’re twisting the screws even further to slash costs.  You’re gonna have to work longer to get that freebie meal and cab ride home, at least if you’re in the UK. The Times of London reports:

A spokesman said: “When times get tough,
any prudent company more aggressively manages expenses.”

In London, at the bank’s European headquarters on Fleet Street, Goldman
circulated a memo entitled Policy Changes – Evening Meals and Taxis, in which it
bemoaned the significant cost of providing free meals for staff who were still
working in the office after 9pm. Goldman has made the service unavailable before
10pm, along with the free black cabs home.

Those little perks and freebies are squeezed by credit crunch – The Times of London
