Holy crap.The New York Times has a new multi-page feature on Mohamed El-Erian, CEO and co-CIO of PIMCO.

One startling nugget from reporter Geraldine Fabrikant’s piece was El-Erian’s paycheck, as well as the paycheck of founder and co-CIO Bill Gross.

Indeed, even by the standards of Wall Street, where many financial types pull down eye-popping paychecks, Mr. El-Erian and Mr. Gross make gobs of money. Mr. El-Erian, 53, was paid about $100 million last year, according to a person with knowledge of Pimco’s finances who spoke on condition of anonymity because the firm, a unit of Allianz, the big German financial company, doesn’t disclose compensation.
