According to this FT story, each Nintendo employee is set to make more money for the company this year than the average Goldman Sachs employee did during its record-breaking 2007.

From Edge:

Nintendo employs under 3,000 staff, each of whom takes home an average annual salary of $90,900 a year. Assuming the platform holder achieves its net profit target of 410 billion yen ($3.9bn) in 2008, each employee will generate the company $1.6 million in profit, according to the paper’s calculations.

In comparison, the average Goldman Sach’s employee generated $1.24 million in profit for the firm before tax and pay in 2007, and received a $660,000 pay packet. The equivalent figure for Google is reportedly $626,000.
