Here’s a list we wouldn’t mind being on. A recent Wall Street Journal study found that Larry Ellison, Oracle’s CEO, has received over $1.84 billion in compensation over the last decade, making him the highest paid CEO in the world. The WSJ estimates Ellison’s personal worth at roughly $28 billion. Another notable tech persona on the list is Steve Jobs. While Jobs only grosses $1 annually in salary his compensation package is quite lucrative. The study estimates that Jobs has received over $749 million over the last 10 years, and ranks fourth on the CEO list. The prophet Christopher Wallace once said, “more money, more problems” (I think technically it was “mo money, mo problems” but you get the point)… wouldn’t you love to have a shot at that inconvenience?
