Pay Attention to Management Pronouncements A Special Place for Corporate Managers

Disconnect Between Pay and Performance

We have nothing against successful executives making a lot of money – some truly deserve every penny they get, and then some. The problem is when pay is utterly disconnected from performanceas is the case with out-of-control severance pack ages – or when disclosure is lacking. In such cases, shareholders should be both vocal and aggressive in pushing for change – it is their money, after all, that's being doled out.
