You normally talk some cold, hard sense, but not this time. Take a look at those numbers again.
One major problem apparently when European firms merge with bi American firms is that the Americans are compensated something like an order of magnitude greater than their European counterparts.
The notion that these people need to be compensated at these levels is just plain wrong. Funny, if you get to know some of these people you'll be shocked and dismayed at how clueless many of them are about the industry, technology, and business. These people have created a giant "club" (as Beezlebut calls it) that sheilds them from any kind of consequence, even when it becomes clear that they have made ferociously incompetant decisions, decisions that not only lose money, but that cost many workers their jobs.
The fact that European and Japanese companies don't even approach these compensation levels tells you something.
Remember, you only need a year or two at these levels to be set for life...then you really don't give that much of a crap because you've got so much in the bank. If one of these guys knew he'd have to sell off his home in the Hamptons if he had a bad year, well then he'd at least care. Remember, Rich McGuinn was a paid advisor to a startup that made a product that competed with one being developed by Lucent.
I'm sickened by how faithless these companies are to their workers, and this proves how bad things stink up there.
