The little people at Zynga need a pay cut, so Mattrick can make more cash. Insane the amount of coin a guy like that makes given how incompetent he was on the Xbone launch.

Well in his defense, he probably no longer gets a free Xbox One, so he wants to be sure he can afford it.

And hey - if his internet ever gives out?







He still has that 360!

Speaking of "Big Corp", it amazes and infuriates me that something like 20% of the staff are fired but then Zynga can afford to guarantee to pay this asshat Mattrick millions upon millions of dollars before he has done a fucking thing. Does anyone still wonder why so many people hate corporate America?

Indeed, $19m is really insane. In Germany Volkswagen's CEO Winterkorn earns 17.7m Euro, as the country's best paid manager. And he's been their CEO for several years, formed the company into a Toyota rival for the global number 1.

And Don Mattrick? He failed the biggest product launch in his time at Microsoft. That surely must be worth something!

But alas, Germany is "socialist", as they often claim on the other side of the pond. That probably explains why we don't see nonsense in such a scale here.

I can't imagine the rank and file there not doing their eanest best to jump ship asap after a slap in the face like that. I'd burn the place down on the way out.

Good luck for anyone at Zynga, you'll be out of work soon.

The payout alone is disgusting but I just can't imagine having a complete tool like that for a boss.

Yeah, that's insane. Particularly when said fuck up has just been fired from his old job for screwing the pooch so badly. How about at least a contingency that his package is predicated on actual positive results instead of just handing over the keys to the kingdom? Fuck me, you make it into the boys club just one place and then your set for life regardless of what you do. This sort of shit is precisely why unions are still needed.

1. FCC refuses to collect data Jul 4, 2013, 11:16 Creston
 
Yeah, because that data basically screams "THE US FUCKING SUCKS FOR BROADBAND" and then the FCC has to admit that their pathetic "We lead the world in broadband!" rhetoric is just paid-for advertising by big Telco / Cable.

Fuck the FCC. Why that miserable agency still exists is beyond belief. It literally serves no purpose other than to parrot whatever Big Corp wants.
