As operating expenses ate up new revenue, profits fell by 12% at the banking giant, which trailed the other Wall Street firms last year with a lagging stock price. A management shakeup ensued, with CEO Chuck Prince naming Robert Druskin as COO in December. Prince later removed Sallie Krawcheck as CFO; she became head of the company's global wealth-management division after that unit's chief, Todd Thompson, quit abruptly. In April, the company announced plans to cut 17,000 jobs.
