    Aw this actually makes me sad… My first job out of college was in this building and I remember being so overwhelmed and awed by it.
    Of course a few months later I was dying to get out, but still – it was special for a while…

    THey’re one of my company’s clients and are answering the phones “Barclays” now. The good news is Barclays is using this to get into the US broker/dealer market and very few people on this part of the business (these were not the people who brought down the company) is not going to lose many jobs.
