Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America revealed that it cut more than 2,800 employees in the third quarter and more than 16,000 employees over the last year.
From the third-quarter earnings release:
At September 30, 2012, the company had 272,594 full-time employees, down 2,866 from the end of the prior quarter, and 16,145 fewer than September 30, 2011. Excluding full-time equivalent employee increases in Legacy Assets and Servicing to handle increasing government and private programs for housing, the number of full-time equivalent employees was down nearly 21,000 from the year-ago quarter to 230,900.
Just over a year ago, BofA announced plans to cut 30,000 employees as part of its Project New BAC.
That means they’re just past the half-way mark.
