BAML Lev Fin mocks laid-off workers at holiday party

This story is 100% true. I was at that party. When they said "high ranking members", they meant really, really high ranking.

"At BAML's lev fin holiday party last week, several members of the group created a PowerPoint presentation that included a slide with the pictures of two employees who'd been laid off earlier in the year, with captions above each person saying, 'What's a loan?' and 'What's a bond?' This was shown in front of the whole group and several high ranking members of BAML who were seen laughing hysterically. The same thing happened last year- apparently besmirching the reputation of laid off employees is a little holiday tradition!"

Honestly, I'm kind of disgusted. It wasn't even that funny. Just kind of spiteful, esp since they did it last year as well.

Funny thing is every other bank mocks BAML at their holiday parties. And it IS that funny.

I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

I disagree. Mocking other banks is all fine and good. Mocking your former colleagues, esp if they've been laid off, is just classless.

At least they are not UBS, and BAML has actually killed it this year and their stock is reflecting that.
