So cut the bonus from the guy who saved the company from near bankruptcy, and turned Activision on a publisher powerhouse so you can keep 800 extra people on the payroll...He got a 200.000.000 $ BONUS after that!
Google says, the average yearly income at Activision is $78,972
So from his BONUS(!!!) they could have employed about 2.532.543 of these "average" income employees for one year or maybe even better those 800 fired employees for 3.165 years (!!! again) each.
Who you will immediately fire anyway?
