Just to top off on a Google filled day (BTW I just downloaded Google Desktop for my Mac and by God does my Mac hate me right now – I assume normal service will resume after the initial index). Anyway ever fancied a job as one of the top executives of Google? Would it put you off if you knew that last year the top execs in Google were only paid $1 for their troubles? Granted these guys get plenty of perks and so forth and are worth a small fortune on paper in terms of shares in the company but surely a $1 salary for the year is a little mad? Haven’t they learned anything from past history of maintaining shares in internet companies? source: BBC NEWS | Business
Steve Jobs also takes a $1/year salary.. although he gets some “gifts” like $46million private jets.
Ah well he does need that jet to get around and help Apple sell more products 🙂
