must be so sad that he's poor now ... poor guy will have to live on spam and ramen
Oracle's Larry Ellison, one of the world’s richest men and best-paid CEOs in the US, is getting his pay cut by more than half. The database giant's chief executive has been awarded just 3 million stock options by its compensation committee in its annual review process. That’s down from 7 million the year before and every year …
Does this mean he is the largest 'private individual shareholder' but there are corporate shareholders with a larger shareholding than him, or does it mean that he owns the largest block of shares of any registered owners? What percentage of Oracle shares does he own?
Gates runs his foundation, so has control over the funds, stupid! Also, the great sums he has invested in projects further GMO's and patents in the third world ... call that philanthropy ? ROFL
Gates needs to go and see a therapist if he thinks he is doing any good.
I think you had better start doing some serious reading about the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and:
* the Common Core curriculum in the USA (doesn't apply to rich kids, natch)
* expired/tainted vaccines in Africa
* their views on the benefits of eugenics, etc.
Just try to keep up, will you?
And they still don't give the normal workers a fucking pay rise - thats 3 years in a row with not a glimmer of a pay increase for the normal working sods.
Fuck you Larry and the rest of the useless management of the company, my heart bleeds that your ridiculously inflated earnings are slightly less inflated...
His salary is so high because they don't pay the employees any more than they have to and don't believe in giving raises. You start at a specific salary and that's it for the rest of your life there, and they push you until you drop.
Every review I had, and we had to go through the useless review process with our managers, was above average at 4 / 5 or 4.5 / 5 points, but got nothing more than a great job from my manager. I even got rewards from the division (org) VPs, but no financial compensation. There's a high turn-around and we wonder why.
