(Reuters) – Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE: ) will give its partners and managing director the opportunity to have as much vacation as they like under a new flexible vacation scheme that promotes “rest, recharge,” The Telegraph reported. Citing an internal memo.

Wall Street bank memo stated that there would be no limit on paid leave starting May 1 and that senior employees can use time off “when needed” without having to take vacation.

According to the memo, employees should expect at least 15 days of annual leave beginning next January. This includes at least one week off consecutively.

Goldman Sachs has not yet responded to my request for comment.

Wall Street banks are affected by this change, as their employees often work very long hours. This comes two months after first-year analysts at Goldman Sachs complained that they were overworked. They threatened to leave within six months, if conditions did not improve.
