Executive CompensationA public corporation’s board must establish a compensation committee to determine how the company’s top executives will be compensated and report the details of compensation to the SEC. Starbuck’s CEO received a base salary of $1,190,000, an incentive bonus of an equal amount, and a stock option award of 550,000 shares of common stock. Components of compensation: Annual base salary Incentive bonuses Stock option awards Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved.
Discussion: Ethics on the JobExplain the following statement: As long as chief financial officers and other corporate managers' salaries, bonuses, or promotions are linked to earnings, the temptation to manage earnings will remain a problem. A manager whose bonus or salary is tied to corporate performance stands to benefit personally if he or she boosts earnings, even if artificially so. This places an ethical dilemma before the officers of a corporation. Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved.
