Sallie Krawcheck: So Put That In Your Pipe And Smoke It

Concern had spread among some of Merrill Lynch’s 15,500 advisers that they would face curbs like those imposed by the bank’s U.S. Trust unit, said the people. The policy bans associates who leave from soliciting the firm’s clients for eight months, starting with a two-month garden leave. The term refers to workers who are ordered to stay home after they give notice, leaving them little to do other than gardening. “Contrary to press and recruiter speculation, there are no changes coming from Merrill Lynch Financial Advisors on any type of garden leave,” Krawcheck wrote in a Feb. 25 memo, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter isn’t public. “Please put that one in the circular file.” [Bloomberg]

    If Krawcheck and BOA are so great why do they have to use dirty legal tricks like Garden Leave to get people to stay. This amounts to nothing more than an unfair hamstring by management over labor.
    Why is “at will employment” a one way street, Bank can fire you immediately but you have to give them notice ?

      You are correct. We have moved from a period of “innovators” in the 70’s and 80’s to two decades of “cost cutters”. This sector is hollowing itself out. There was competition, then repeal of Glass Steagall and deregulation created an oligopoly. All innovators repalced by cost cutters. Then 2008 Credit crisi created a cartel. They have no other way to increase rpofitability since “cost cutting” is over. They now want to legislate indentured servitude.
