41 Percent Of Wall Street Ready To Leave Financial Industry: Survey

Posted: Updated:

News flash: Apparently some Wall Street workers are only in it for the money.

In 2012, 41 percent of Wall Street workers admitted to being ready to leave the financial industry, according to the recent eFinancialCareers 2012 Compensation Survey. That's up from 35 percent the year before.

The defeatist attitude may have something to do with the smaller salaries and shrinking bonuses workers are bringing home.

But don't feel too bad. The average Wall Street salary still comes in at a whopping $363,000, according to an October 2012 report by New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.
