Between salaries, bonuses and stock options, their median income fell by 2% in 2020, the year of the pandemic, the company recalled.
In 2021, these 100 executives earned an average of $ 20 million, the highest being Intel chief executive Patrick Gelsinger ($ 178 million).
He is followed by Tim Cook, Apple (99 million), Hawk Tan, Bradcom (61 million), and Satya Nadella, Microsoft (50 million).

As a result of these large increases, the ratio between the salaries of superiors and their employees also increased. Bosses earned an average of 254 times more than their employees in 2021, 238 times more than the year before.
The median salary for employees of these 100 large companies rose 4% to $ 71,869.
