Ballmer 'Underpaid' in 2007
Steve Ballmer pulled
in about $1.3 million
in fiscal 2007, a
according to Microsoft.
And, really, it doesn't seem like that much money for a guy who heads a company
that made more than $50 billion in the same fiscal year. Our favorite part of
this story, though, comes from the second linked article (the one from Australian
"Unlike some companies that spend millions on executive perks, Microsoft
gave Ballmer a modest $US6750 to his retirement plan and about $US3000 worth
of life insurance and athletic club memberships."
Athletic club memberships. Yeah. We're just going to let that one sit out there.
