It's astonishing that idiot is in charge of anything, especially other human beings.
Is he an idiot?.... He joined Unity, upped his salary 160%
, then fired hundreds of staff. You may be an idiot, people who work for him may be idiot or even Unity devs may be idiot... but not this guy. He is every CEO's dream.Unity Software CEO John Riccitiello's 2020 pay jumps 160% to $22MUnity fires 200 workers just weeks after promising no lay-offs
Most if not all of these game publisher CEOs have ZERO knowledge in game development or/and even play any game in their life are making 10 of millions USD every year are no idiot.
Before EA hired him as CEO, Riccitiello worked at Elevation Partners, a private equity fund he helped start. Before then he was EA's chief operating officer from 1997 to 2004. Earlier in his career he worked at Sara Lee Corp., Wilson Sporting Goods Co., Haagen-Dazs, Pepsico (NYSE: PEP), and Clorox (NYSE: CLX).
This guy see video game nothing more than a cup of ice-cream or a can of Pepsi. He doesn't play video game, he plays the $$ game and he plays it better than most of us. This comment was edited on Jul 17, 2022, 16:04.
