There were no raises for top Google executives this year. From a SEC filing:
In the first quarter of 2008, the [Leadership Development and Compensation Committee] and board of directors reviewed our named executive officers’ base salaries, other than Eric, Larry and Sergey, and decided it was appropriate to maintain salaries at $450,000.
The Googlers stuck with their $450,000 salaries include CFO Patrick Pichette, engineer SVP Alan Eustace, and top product manager Jonathan Rosenberg.
The trio did fine overall, though; their annual bonuses totaled nearly $5 million.
