The company is expected to fill fewer than 250 jobs in the coming weeks, a person familiar with the New York-based bank’s plans said Tuesday.
Goldman Sachs, led by CEO David Solomon, was among the first major firms on Wall Street to cut jobs in September, cutting a few hundred jobs. Then it cut more jobs in January, firing about 3,200 employees. Morgan Stanley He announced 3,000 job cuts this month, and c. B. Morgan Chase It cut about 500 jobs, CNBC reported last week.

Directors and some partners will be affected by the cuts at Goldman, according to the person who declined to be identified speaking about the layoffs. The Wall Street Journal reported the news earlier on Tuesday.
Goldman had 45,400 employees as of March 31, down 6% from the fourth quarter of 2022.
