What gets an email flagged at Goldman

Proper email etiquette is absolutely necessary when it comes to succeeding and excelling in your career.

Most people know the basics -- don't use abbreviations, don't use slang terms to someone higher up and most definitely do not use profanity.

You would think that even those at a company as reputable as Goldman Sachs would be familiar with these rules.

But as CNBC reports, not quite.
