Also severance packages. Consider the Yahoo marketing exec recently fired at Yahoo after only 18 months. He walked away with $88M after on 18 months. (I think it was $88M --might be lower). Outrageous. It's an incentive for a nefarious, smooth-talking exec to get himself hired then of course screw up and walk away a millionaire. Stranger things have happened. Of course his reputation would be shot --- but if he's a millionaire --- who cares!! (Why did I say "he"?)
