Well, Reed Hastings, Netflix co-founder and CEO, is now paying the price for making some terrible decisions and executing poorly. His stock option grant for 2012 is only $1.5M, as shown in the recently filed 8-K Netflix, Inc. - Current Report
and the total option value for the 5 man executive team is $6.6M. This amount is only half of what Mr. Hastings received in 2010.
In other words, Mr Hastings will earn more than $1M in new stock options if he manages to lead the company to the stock price it had a year ago. Netflix shareholders must be paralyzed with joy.
