A big corporation became .5% less evil today.


"I'm working in my dreams, I promise." (Thinkstock)

Investment banking interns are stereotypically portrayed as abused, overworked sycophants who will subject themselves to endless torment in order to nab that full-time offer by the end of the summer. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is trying to break—let me rephrase—dent that stereotype with a new workplace initiative.

In an act of divine mercy, the company has told its summer investment interns not to stay past midnight or arrive before 7 a.m. How generous of you, kind master! But wait! That's not all! They are also letting interns take Saturdays off, thus letting their summer employees taste the rare privilege of being a regular human being.
