Younger staff in London follow revolt in US offices over remote-working conditions
The reputation of Goldman Sachs as the most desirable employer for aspiring investment bankers is at stake. Legendary for its pulling power with the best graduates, the bank is now facing a rebellion in its lower ranks.

Some have started demanding change, while others are plotting their exit. What began as a little local trouble at a US office in February has now spread to the UK.
