I’ve never believed in titles meaning anything significant in the workplace.

Was musing over this after reading an article about Goldman Sachs.

“In a subsequent memo to staff, Goldman chief executive Lloyd Blankfein and chief operating officer Gary Cohn said Mr Smith’s views were in the minority among his 12,000 fellow vice-presidents around the world.”

Twelve thousand vice-presidents!!

If you haven’t read Greg Smith’s OpEd about why he is leaving Goldman Sachs, you should.
