Remember when Citigroup announced it was going to save a bunch of money by banning color copies and requiring employees to print on both sides? Deutsche Bank appears to be taking a play from that playabook.
From the front lines:
There is presently a "supplies freeze" at DB. No one is allowed to order pencils, paper, rulers (what are they using the rulers for?) etc. I've been using Red & Black notebooks, pens and Post It's as currency for favors. This afternoon, I sat in a meeting where we didn't have enough chairs and were told we couldn't order more because of aforementioned "supplies freeze."
