Ex-BofA employee: My firing was ‘act of violence”
This is a nypost.com article.
Former Bank of America chief of global wealth management Sallie Krawcheck isn’t over her firing by boss Brian Moynihan.
One of Wall Street’s toughest cookies revealed her darkest career moments earlier this month in an interview — from being dropped from 96 percent of colleagues’ Christmas-card lists after exiting BofA and also receiving photocopies of male workers’ private parts to getting booted from BofA.
Krawcheck reveals all in a new podcast interview series called “Radiate” with Bloomberg journalist Betty Liu.
“The Bank of America [firing] felt like a random act of violence, because the business that I had responsibility for was doing well, it was growing, it might have been the only business there that was growing. Our noses were clean. There were no scandals,” she says, adding, “Then I got reorganized out.”
Krawcheck is now busy building her own company, called Ellevate Network, which helps women develop business networks to advance their careers.
Krawcheck also recalls her time at Salomon Brothers, when she started each day by receiving a photocopy of a colleague’s private parts.
She calls out a former female colleague who pleaded with her to stay in touch after she exited BofA, and then refused to accept a LinkedIn request.
Krawcheck , one of the most prominent ex-Wall Street executives, says women aren’t as good as men at networking to find new jobs, and she claims that playing it straight and getting by on the strength of a résumé is just plain dumb.
