They are only there long enough to get their oversized piece of the pie, Screw the employees, and get their separation bonus.

It's the greed of the board of directors that support the man with the plan .

Does it really mater how long your a CEO? Most companies offer a golden parachute if your let go, at that point you've made it the top and are so filthy rich that "Losing" your job isn't in any way the same as when you or I lose a job, Not saying its a bad thing, success should be awarded, although I think it goes way to far when in the last 20 years CEO salaries have increased some 200-400% while our salaries barely increase with inflation or are completely stagnant.

They need that money to buy friends with and for divorce settlements.  Good luck though on buying the respect of anyone that earns their living without walking on or screwing anyone else.

The one that is not on your list but should be is Don Knauss, CEO of Clorox. He's got longevity, delivered solid growth results and leads the company in a moral fashion. One of the best CEO's that isn't known to most of the world as Don is pretty unassuming.

it astounds me to high heavon that 85 richies on earth have as much WEALTH as 3.5 billion humans....sad to think 85 control everything, the power, gov, money, etc. and instead of make life better for us and half the world they would rather be money hungry and shove the countless billions up there ****s. remember they gave like 1% of that money to charity that totally creates jobs....

After working for 25 years for somebody else I decided it was time for a change, trading was the answer for me because I need to work from home. I say stop working for somebody else and make your own money .Check out the website Traders Superstore, just Google them you should be able to find them, these guys are really doing it right and make you wonder why everybody isn't like them.
