Sad News From Barclays


We've been informed that a Barcap banking analyst (tech, a legacy Lehman employee) killed himself over the weekend of the 15th. One account claimed that he'd been up for three days working and was berated by a superior, but that has not been confirmed and may simply be a product of the rumor mill. The layoffs that went down yesterday were apparently supposed to occur last week but were pushed back because of the tragedy. Barclays has not yet returned calls for comment.
