First, the bad news: if you’re a CEO, your salary probably hasn’t recovered much since the financial collapse. This according to Inc’s most recent survey on CEO compensation. The good news, however, is that the survey (and some other fun tidbits of information Mogulite came across) lays to rest some commonly held notions about what it takes to be a super rich CEO.
For starters the survey shows geographical superiority goes to Chicago and not New York City, with CEOs there had a median salary of $279,000 a year compared to Manhattan’s $272,000. Ouch!
