I thought you guys might find this story entertaining, while it is an isolated incident within GS's PWM group, it's still bizarre what this intern went through.
Some bizarre excerpts that stand out from the article below:
"He was assigned to work on the self-titled "Team 007," which was led by private wealth adviser Julius "Fast Julie" Erukhimov."*
In his lawsuit, filed Friday but withheld from the court until Monday, Blumenthal describes Erukhimov as physically aggressive, with a "habit of getting drunk and punching people." Blumenthal says that despite being underage, he was pressured to drink heavily at company events and was often mocked by employees and called a "pussy" for not drinking fast enough."
He allegedly started pounding on the bar, telling Blumenthal he would "teach him how to drink," and punched Blumenthal in the stomach. Erukhimov exhorted Blumenthal to punch him back, and when he would not Erukhimov began "aggressively wrestling" Blumenthal, pushing him from the bar to the outside patio. He then put Blumenthal in a chokehold, the suit states, and pushed him up against a brick wall in an alleyway where Blumenthal could not escape.
At his apartment, Erukhimov gave Blumenthal four pain relievers and allegedly told him not to tell management, saying that his uncle and cousin were contract killers for Russian oligarchs, something Erukhimov had boasted about before"**
