Four senior, but not the most senior, Google bosses are getting 30 per cent pay rises and a hefty jump in their expected bonuses. Basic pay for the four goes up from $500,000 in 2010 to $650,000 in 2011. The four will also see their target bonus go up from 150 per cent of salary to 250 per cent. Half this bonus is based on …
