9 crazy things tech companies have bought for their execs
Tech executives already get paid a lot, but sometimes companies tuck a little something extra into their compensation.
And these things come to light in government filings that have to go into detail on how much their top brass makes.
Much of the money an exec makes is just salary and stock, but sometimes they get a little extra. Here's some of the craziest perks these industry leaders have received:
Salesforce bought its new COO a fancy $41,000 watch in 2015.
Salesforce also paid $33,400 to evacuate a sick family member of its CPO from a foreign country.
Oracle pays for its top execs to get legal help for their political donations.
Google paid Eric Schmidt $672,400 to fly guests to one conference.
HP Inc. paid $2 million to relocate its CEO from Singapore to Palo Alto, CA.
HP's top brass also received $18,000 each for financial planning.
Twitter executives paid more than $110,00 for personal car services.
PayPal paid $109,410 to protect its CEO during his personal vacations.
But that's still way less than the $1.6 million Amazon pays to protect Jeff Bezos at work and home.
