People might bequitting the firm while the Goldman Sachs cache still looks goodon their resumes, earnings may have been shoddy, and everyone might be talking smack about the firm, but there are reasons to remain envious of the people working there.

1. They have a Momofuko food stand,

2. They have a nearby Shake Shack

3. They earn a solid paycheck, of course.

And now, there's a new company rule (one of the many) that if you're like us, you will like the sound of. Rule # 3093458023, which apparently says that you cannot speak about Goldman while drinking.

From the Wall Street Journal's Heard on the Street:

In an elevator leaving a Manhattan bar in recent days, we heard a young man being asked where he worked. In response he said he was at Goldman and was in New York for training before heading to Asia to start work.Immediately he was dressed down by a female colleague, who said "they told us not to say that when drinking. It's inappropriate."

It's like a cool secret club!
