You still have to pay taxes when cashing out the options. But options do give you some flexibility to effectively set your own income.

more responsibility -- more anxiousness --shorter life, so she got what she deserves, consider Steve Jobs, dead at 50+, bill gates much smarter, give up all the burden and still alive...

So, how many people do you know that makes $150,000 a year. I would like that job. A very small percentage makes more than $75,000/year in IBM. That is 20X less or 5% of what the CEO of IBM is making. That is a LOT more than the taxes that she might be paying.

At $11.50 per employee per year for her salary with bonus, IBM got her cheap.

Role model is the right word. Really admire her.

That is too small I must point out. Where is the extra "0"?

I'm impressed at how you have a firm hold of the subject. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My Facebook blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you give on your site. Please let me know if this is not alright with you. Appreciate it! Thanks, http://www.comprehensivebackgroundcheck.info

You know what, I actually hadn't thought about it this way, but you're right. Bert is also right that it's not, relatively speaking, a huge sum... It's a huge sum to mere mortals like us though. She obviously worked and fought hard to get to where she is, I think she's a role model for many young female engineers, and I applaud her.

Perhaps my view is a bit jaded by the influence in my life of IBM in the 80's and 90's, but it is amazing to me that there are people in many other occupations with much less responsibility and experience who make much more in compensation than the CEO of IBM.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
