Fear and Drinking at Goldman Sachs


Since the media and the good people in the United States government identified Goldman Sachs as the root of all evil, managers at the firm have been encouraging employees to keep a low profile. Some employees are taking this extremely seriously, according to the Journal, by not talking to the press, saying “Halliburton” when asked where they are employed, and doing whatever they can in order to avoid being corralled into arguments about collateralized-debt obligations with know-nothing commoners.

Some employees are even reluctant even to go out to lunch with co-workers for fear of being overheard talking about Goldman, said one person familiar with the matter.

And some are not.
