      It's called a 'golden paracute' an is the norm for large company CEOs.

      It's a separation package, if you will.

      Instead of pay for performance it's pay for failure.. I gotta get me one of those jobs.

      Not always. It’s the board of directors that make the choice to let a CEO go, it could be for lack of performance or the wrong fit for where the board wants to take the company.

      If I failed that bad in which the company wanted to pay me millions to leave I’m not sure if I could accept it because I have a certain work ethic that I get paid for the good job I do. If I suck then I should not get paid for it.

      When I first started my plumbing career my boss put me in the field too soon and I was not knowledgeable enough to do good work and had too many call backs. I went to my boss and told him so and asked that I continue to work with the journeyman plumbers until I had more knowledge. That made me a better plumber and also gave me respect from the others. Pride is only good to a point.

      When they are elected by the board they negotiate terms and ,stock options and perks for so many years. If the board wants to let a CEO go they have to buy him out. So to get around a lot of legal stuff they give him a bonus and all his other perks which adds up into the millons of dollars. It's the American Way now a days. He's a looser that hits the big time. Go Figure.
