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.

The flagged messages are then reviewed by the compliance department to see whether or not the message needs to be addressed further.

Some of these phrases are flagged for profanity and inappropriate behavior, while others raise a flag for over-promising and more serious manners.
