Layoffs Watch ’10: Barclays Plans Ahead?

Congrats to all those who made it through yesterday employment intact. Having said that…

A source close close to Phil Mickelson tells us: “There are now serious rumours of a second round of redundancies at BarCap in Q4 of this year, if the business environment does not materially improve.”

    It’s most efficient to dump folks just before their bonus is due. How else can you turn a profit on the compensation pool?

    golf sucks. It’s a sport for boring men watched on TV by the most boring of all. But I really like golf clubs, that’s where you meet nice, down to earth folks with good attitudes and socially inclusive tendencies (unless you’re poor, or a caddy, or went to public school, or different or…insert whatever else here).

    @7 and 8 you both better stay on topic or Bess will come in here and scissor-kick the fuck out of your teeth – and it won’t be the kind of beat down where you can have your hands down your pants.

    Phil also initiated coverage on the manzier subset of the apparel industry. Dana Telsey, clearly envious of Phil’s moobtastic torso, responded “no comment” through her “fabulous” male assistant.

    Barclays is a second-rate organization. It’s a wanna-be player. No one wants to work there. Tons of people are still leaving voluntarily (never mind the lay-offs).

    What groups were hit?

    @18 agreed, it was choice to get layed-off

    Agreed, Barclays is a shell of a bank and a mid-tier player at best. Most of the talent has left or is in the process of leaving on their own accord.

    Barclays + Lehman < Lehman
