Goldman Sachs Probably Won’t Be Laying People Off Anytime Soon

People being the operative word here, as the statement “we’re going to look for other means for efficiency” most certainly suggests plants may once again find themselves on the chopping block.

After a year of cost-cutting that resulted in more than 2,400 job cuts, Goldman Sachs is satisfied with its staffing levels and doesn’t intend to conduct more large layoffs. Chief Financial Officer David Viniar said the firm has “largely implemented our announced expense reductions” and is “relatively well-positioned, assuming the environment stays where it is.” He was speaking on a conference call with analysts to discuss first-quarter earnings. “We’re going to look for other means for efficiency,” he said. “I wouldn’t expect anything major to change from where we are.”
