"11:56 AM Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) CEO Peter Voser's 2012 pay package was more than double that of his nearest rival, BP's Bob Dudley, reflecting the companies' diverging fortunes. Voser's total 2012 remuneration was €5.1M ($6.6M), including a €3.3M cash bonus on top of an annual €1.6M salary and other benefits."
Total Return to Shareholders was negative in 2012. Expensive CEO for mediocre results...in my view...
Did all you employees receive a bonus 2 times your salary???
Yup. It's not as good as the 1.4% the year before. You have to recall the monumental blunders that occurred last year that cost the company Billions even though we made Billions. I guess we should be thankful we even got a bonus. With the track we're on now, we may have to pay back some for this year.
9% for a year sounds great to me, for old retiree's 9% would be good (not great) if ever there is an inflation adjustment which don't happen but every bunch of years. Be thankful for your blessings. Obama is trying to do a job on us now.
