Question Of The Day: Is Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg Over Paid?


 

Even though Facebook is a well recognized company it is really not that big or profitable yet Mrs. Sandberg was paid over $26 million last year.

Even though Facebook is a well recognized company it is really not that big or profitable yet Mrs. Sandberg was paid over $26 million last year.

 

I think it is a legitimate question to ask (I realize most of you don’t care but I’m annoyed that she makes so much for running a small company).  Here is a woman that helps run a company (she isn’t even the ceo) that reported a little over billion dollars in pretax profit in 2012.  The company isn’t really that big, it only employs about 3,000 people.  Yet Sheryl Sandberg was paid over $26 million dollars last year.  Well lets compare her to another famous executive for Ford.  Alan Mulally is the ceo of Ford.  His company reported over $5 billion in profit for 2012 and his company employs well over 200,000 people world-wide yet he was only paid roughly $21 million dollars.  I realize she works for a well-recognized company that many of us use on a regular basis but you could say the same thing about Mulally.  You could also say that Mulally was instrumental in saving the Ford Motor Vehicle Company from certain destruction.  So what has Miss Sandberg done to justify her many millions in compensation?  I have no problem paying top talent for delivering results but I just don’t see how she is worth more per year running a smaller company than Mulally while he also is generating more profit at a much bigger and more complex company.
