The job front doesn’t look much better today. Some Merrill Lynch brokers are apparently “insulted” with BofA CEO Kenny Lewis’ recently announced retention package and are perhaps looking to jump ship en masse (the package sounds like a plan out of a Senator named McCain's playbook: good for the big earners, but less lucrative for lower ones). Meanwhile, Lehman/Barclays is about to slaughter its IT staff with the job-cutting axe (for a break from the horror, check out this comedic take of dealing with life after Lehman), Fidelity Investments is about to bring down the hatchet on about 4,000 insiders (spelling bad news across the investment management industry), and hedge fund insiders are, if they’re not already, busy spell-checking their CVs after reports revealed that October will be the bloodiest month for hedge funds in a long time—in fact, October’s on track to be the worst 30 day period in 10 years for the industry. Scary times indeed.
