Why does Goldman Sachs have a reputation as the bad guy on Wall Street? Maybe because it is run by guys with the bad qualities who are
abrasive, risk takers, intimidating, commercial, focused on making money, makers of tough policy, in-your-face arrogant, capable of doing questionable things, bluffers, not emotionally connected to clients, intent on getting in with the "right people," capable of using fear, firmness, strategy and drive, playing only to win, competitive rather than conciliatory, in conflict with the treatment of clients, pushing for more risks, disciplined in recognizing and taking care of excessive risk, working long hard hours, not well liked by other traders, suspect in some business relationships, lacking in sensitivity to others, in personal conflicts of interest, compulsive in business and brusque, and, of course, greedy for money.
There, that describes both Cohn and Goldman Sachs. The listed qualities, taken from the profile in Bloomberg, identify the bank and describe the bank's executive(s).
