Goldman Pushes Junior Investment Bankers to Take Weekends Off

Goldman Sachs Group Inc., this year’s top merger adviser, is discouraging investment banking analysts from working weekends as it overhauls demands placed on entry-level employees and the support they receive.

Goldman Sachs developed a “junior banker task force” of executives from around the world earlier this year to improve analysts’ work environment and career development, said Michael DuVally, a company spokesman. The bank will have 332 analysts in its 2014 class, up 23 percent from 2012, he said.
