Goldman Sachs Employees Could Earn $773,000 in 2009

The recession is still in full swing, but Goldman Sachs is on track for a record-setting year in terms of employee compensation. The firm yesterday reported second-quarter profits of $3.4 billion, and if it continues with the same success rate as the first half of 2009, employees would share a record bonus pool come year-end.

If the estimations materialize, Fortune points out, "The average Goldman worker could end up taking home more than 10 times the typical American family's income." The average employee would finish the year with approximately $773,000, more than doubling the $363,000 they took home in 2008 and trumping the $662,000 they made in 2007. Even if Goldman doesn't end up with a record-setting year, the pay scale is seen as a bit of a shock in light of the current economy.
