Since excerpts of Greg Smith’s book have been made public, some employees at Goldman Sachs are using the in “Why I Left Goldman Sachs” as nick names, according to the WSJ.

From the WSJ:

One favourite is “Mr. Cleanse,” a character that Mr. Smith—who shot to prominence after he published a scathing op-ed about Goldman’s culture in the New York Times—refers to because of his penchant for juice cleanses. Then there is “ChapStick,” the banker who expensed a $1 ChapStick on a ski trip. Another goes by “Ted Simpson,” which is the fake name for the Goldman salesman who, upon hearing of Mr. Smith’s ping-pong prowess, signed him up to fly to Boston and represent the New York desk.

Apparently being a Ted is a good thing. We’re not sure what being a ChapStick is.
