Google senior execs getting 30 percent raises

Google gave all of its employees raises earlier this week, but it saved the best raises for its senior management team.


Four of Google’s seven named executive officers–Patrick Pichette, Nikesh Arora, Alan Eustace, and Jonathan Rosenberg–are getting 30 percent raises for 2011, bringing each of their base salaries to $650,000 from $500,000, Google announced in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission late Friday. Earlier in the week, Google gave everybody else a 10 percent raise, along with a $1,000 bonus, as it tries to hang on to employees amid a talent war in Silicon Valley.
