Facebook is one of the most profitable company ever. The CEO of the company, Mark Zuckerberg, made his millions because of his social networking site. So, there is no wonder why and no surprise why executives at Facebook also earn big.
According reports, Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook is the highest-paid personel that receive a good $ 26.2 million last year. According to the statement submitted to the SEC on Friady, the COO receives a salary of $321,128 and a whopping bonus of $276,730. She also earned $25.6 million from stocks. It is actually a decline from the year before from $31 million, but does it even hurt? we don’t think so.
How about the CEO? Mark Zuckerberg, one of the youngest self-made millionaire, earned about $2.3 billion in 2012 from the 60 million stocks he used before announcing the first stock offering in the public on May. He easily raised money for his tax bill in 2012 through selling 30.2 million shares for $38 each, now you do the math and figure how much he made.
His pay last year was just under $2 million, that is still more than double than the COO makes. And like any other millionaires, he also bought a private jet for his travels.
