Top Guys Always Get The Dough

We’ve had a number of stories about executive compensation at tech companies lately, so here’s a good one from News.com showing that despite all the buzz and hype about various tech companies cutting their bonuses to execs, almost all of those execs still ended up getting millions from their companies whether through stock option sales or other methods (loan forgiveness is a popular one). So, according to the article, the trick to becoming really wealthy is just to get a top job at one of these tech companies, ride the company down, and force them to fire you with a huge severance package – and then live comfortably the rest of your life. Sounds like a good deal.
