Many CEOs in the Games Industry Make Totally Too Much Money
considering holding a contest to determine how many hours of labor it would take over one Black Friday. George Sherman, GameStop’s CEO, was not there for long (2019-2021), however he did experience many of the highlights and received just over $7.5million in compensation.
Games One, which is located at the bottom of these figures, explains how the board votes for these people and places them in positions of power, rewarding them with huge amounts of money. The report labels the list “democracy as action” and concludes with a prediction about how “executive compensation” will continue to rise.
It’s amazing how this works: all the money and none of the talent. GameStop has a wage gap ratio of 1 to 650. There is no one doing enough work to justify some of these divisions. The list becomes more frustrating as you examine it. You will see that not all cases have the same gap and that no one is adding that much value.
I do not have a cut-off for you. However, I can tell that no one contributes tens or millions of dollars of talent to these places. And that your compensation becomes unacceptable.
