Layoffs Watch ’12: Bank Of America

…needs a few more years to get through its “cost-cutting initiative.”

Head count dropped by 3,000 from last quarter, the bank said today. Bank of America this quarter entered the second phase of “Project New BAC,” its companywide cost-cutting initiative, targeting a $5 billion reduction in spending by the bank by the end of 2014. Some of that will come from job cuts, the bank has said, as it plans to reduce the number of positions at the bank by 30,000 over the next three years…The current phase of New BAC will be focused on saving money in its commercial banking, global wealth and investment management, world-wide corporate banking, global markets and some support functions. The spokesman could not confirm that future reductions will be limited only in these businesses, as “some of the ideas that came from Phase 1 will take a number of years to implement.”

    We're not going to get fired, because we've already been fired. About 3 days ago a couple pink slips came in the mail. One for you and one for me. So what did I do? I mailed them halfway to Siberia.

      You know how many people used to work under me Bob?

      How many?

      Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I had eight different people to blame it on. That's my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fire another analyst.

    Is Phase 1 over or not then?

    $5,000,000,000 / 30,000 = $166k. Seems like they could cut a whole lot more people, right?

  6. those were the days says:

    I liked the Old Project BAC better under Ken Lewis. Each day our BAC started at .00, and we saw how many Boone's we could drink to get our BAC up.

  7. dumb says:

    Ken Lewis is getting about $3.5mm a year in pension payouts for the rest of his life – what a douchebag.

    Well, just a second there, professor. We, uh, we fixed the *glitch*. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally.
