Bad Year For Bonuses? Not For Google Execs

This story was written by Rory Maher.
Bonuses on Wall Street may be getting slashed, but executives at plenty of other big companies are still getting their year-end payoutseven if, unlike in recent years, they aren't quite enough to buy that Napa winery or mansion in the Hamptons. In an SEC filing today, Google (NSDQ: GOOG) lists 2008 bonuses for some of its senior executives. 

Robert A. Eustace, SVP Engineering & Research                 $1,376,000
Omid Kordestani, SVP Global Sales & Business Development     $1,376,000
Patrick Pichette, Chief Financial Officer                           $1,244,000
George Reyes, Former Chief Financial Officer                       $675,000
Jonathan Rosenberg, SVP Product Management                   $1,638,000

Note: These bonuses were down slightly from last year, and, as in previous years, founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page and CEO Eric Schmidt took home no cash bonus.
