2007 proved to be an extremely difficult year for Wall Street firms, but investment bank Goldman Sachs navigated its way to record revenues and profits. Goldman booked profits of $11.6 billion. This translated into bumper bonuses, better than any other Wall Street firm.
Goldman spent nearly $20.2 billion on compensation and benefits in its latest fiscal year. Divide that by the number of worldwide employees (30,522) for an average of.$661,400 per employee. Top people at Goldman receive bonuses in the millions but the awards go deep into the company ranks.
