This is actually very common. When a company is dying, sometimes the board will vote to give the CEO a high bonus to incentivize them to stay and fix things. Cus if the CEO leaves, then investor confidence plummets and the stock will crash (bad for everyone). Perhaps this means that kotik was planning on leaving his sinking ship….. Kind of a dick move by a 'leader'

I'm flabbergasted that what Acrivision and Bobby Kotick are doing is even legal… seriously… wtf

It's sad (for me) that raycon are sponsoring you when you live in Australia, but they don't deliver here 🙁

Kotick is a menace. Fire him and divide his salary to the employees that actually matter

Bobby Kotick is the most evil person in the gaming industry. And that includes Andrew Wilson and Anita Sarkeesian.

That's capitslism in its purest form. It does not innovate or care for workers. It does the opposite. Capitalism concentrates ever more money and power in the hands of a few people. Welcome to the second Gilded Age.

Misleading story. Kotick's bonus was stock options. Activision didn't cut him a check for $200 million dollars.

You can call them evil all you want. Yet people are still going to keep buying Activision stuff. So nothing's going to change.

Didn't they do this two or three years ago, but it was four or five hundred people laid off.

With just ~5% of his bonus alone he could pay those people for one year. Would you even notice a 5% cut to your bonus? Or would Bobby Kotick rather ask if those people would even notice a whole year without pay?

The average salary of a programmer is around $100K. For $200M you could employ 200 programmers for 10 years.

Activision: why employ 200 people for 10 years when you can fire 200 people and take a fat check of $200M?

There should honestly be a limit to how much money executives can take from a company.

The realization that we live in a world were 190 individuals could have been given $1,000,000.00 APIECE, instead of a SINGULAR PERSON receiving $190,000,000.00… it may be time to investigate your economy for similarities to the game of 'Monopoly'. Full stop.

Nothing will change because if a cool trailer gets released, people will keep supporting the company.

Why did you take the time and effort to erase the devil horns from the thumbnail image? Kotick deserves to be displayed as what he is, the literal fucking devil.

1, why should they keep employees they don’t need?
2, What has the the ceo pay todo with anything?
3, Who are you to tell CEOs how much money they can earn with their companies which thanks to their management are making those dollars? This “uuuh he CEO, He rich, he evil” is so dated and boring. They don’t need those employees, they cut them. End of story. Should they keep them just to be nice or what 🙄

Don’t get me wrong, this is still trash, but this ain’t new. Recently, the Kroger CEO did the exact same thing. They purposely underpay their associates to line their pockets as well.

Activision is obviously a one man show as their CEO will be able to fill all of these positions by himself

Douche bags gonna douche, its in their nature. They only understand money so the only way to make them understand what they are doing is wrong is to take away their money by not buying their products. Stop pre-ordering games and stop paying money to companies that do things like this. We have more power than them as they are dependent on us to survive.

With the event sector being decimated with countless bankruptcies caused by the pandemic, Bobby Kotick is counting on hiring back talent on the cheap.
