Google’s Outrageous Executive Compensation Plan

Guess how much do the founders Sergey and Larry, and CEO of Google Eric Schmidt pay themselves?

Finally the search engine giant has filed its 2008 proxy statement which shows what insane amounts these guys pay themselves as Salary at Google:

Eric Schmidt

Salary: $1
Bonus: $1,898
Other: $474,662 (security)* + $4,000 (plane)

Sergey Brin

Salary: $1
Bonus: $1,723
Other: $0

Larry Page

Salary: $1
Bonus: $1,723
Other: $0

Many in regular corporate America would complain about having to pay themselves for the company plane ride.

Also note how much Eric spends on security while the founders none. Half a million?! Given that the founders are the real holy rollers here, its kind of strange.

        All of Blizzard NA sites are down for maintenance, and arappently it’s also affecting for some reason. However, it looks like it’s only affecting NA servers. SEA servers are up and running, and I assume all other non-NA servers are working just fine too.No idea how long the downtime would last, couldn’t find any info on that. lenmagnet +6Was this answer helpful?

        Do you really think peploe are going to believe that you’re just some unbiased bystander who was so outraged over a complete stranger being cloned that they created a new account, befriended peploe from the cloned person’s account, spent days explaining to peploe that this person was cloned, reported the clone to various officials? Really?Just for the record, I didn’t make the account, and I really don’t care if it’s reported. Not that I think you’ll believe me, of course

        I like fictional media such as moievs, books etc; can’t explain why, I just find them interesting. Before I got into anime and manga I read novels about 6 hours a day (Now it’s anime 6 hours a day ^_^). I prefer anime to any other media now, because, well, watching animation is so much more interesting than reading text, which would be why I like video, and anime specifically because of how well the story is done, how funny it is, etc.

    4. I like that I don’t have to pay for a subscription like wow

    5. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    6. Nice blog mate, hope you’re getting ready for the coming crash! The hammer is going to drop soon. The economy is going to sink before August 2013 (this is when the Federal Reserve’s 100 Year Charter expires). Spread the word and stay safe. Peace.

    7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    8. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or advice. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it!

      I enjoy the humorous chrerctaas’ expessions (especially the whole flooring thing) as well as the humorous exaggeration of Japanese customs, the artwork, and the J-Pop and J-rock music as well as original theme music. Other then those unique things, I find that a lot of anime I’ve watched entertains me with plenty of action ( Ki Blasts, spirit energy weapons, etc ) and great storylines.

      Yet again, how is this being construed as Merck fnocirg anyone to have the vaccine? Merck doesn’t control Texas legislature. There is an opt-out option for the vaccine if parents so choose, I believe. There’s also the choice of not taking advantage of public education. Simply making something inconvenient to get around is NOT the same as being forced to do something.If young women are choosing to get this vaccine, how is that fnocirg them?

    26. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

      It is called the Shimizu ザー清水 in Japanese. Most feoiegnrrs don’t know about it but all Japanese do.I am going to share the secret with you.As you know, it is very difficult to gain entry into Japan’s top university, Tokyo University. So hard in fact that many people study several years at expensive cram schools after high school to pass the entrance exam. There have been well known instances of students ending their lives after several failed attempts at entry. Apparently back in the 60 s the last question on the last page on the last day of testing contained a question that stumped many a Japanese genius. The question was; how many liars are in a room when both people are being kind to each other ? Was this a trick question? A test of ethics? Is zero a number? Honne and tatemae relevant? These questions and many others went through the head of the now famous 19 year old Shimuzu san as he sat in the hot examination room back in the late summer of 1967. Japanese children to this day are taught to do the Shimuzu so as to not forget that young student named Shimizu and his failure to answer that question correctly and how he went on to end his life. Sad and alone. The next time you are asked to pose for a camera please do not forget young Mr. Shimizu. Everyone knows zero isn’t a number.

      It is sad that the weak minded cnonat see the difference between the teachings of Christ and Christianity. Most of my family are proclaimed Christians of one sort or another and yet they are rather proud of their shrewd’ abilities to lie cheat and steal in order to make money. They are violently loyal to Christianity but believe that the Negro should be back on the plantation where God meant for them to be. Evil people who are only words with no idea what the words mean.
