Sony Top Tier Return Bonuses, Take Pay Cuts

Sony Top Tier Return Bonuses, Take Pay Cuts

Following four years of consecutive losses at Sony, company executives like Sir Howard Stringer and Worldwide boss Kaz Hirai have returned bonuses paid to them by the firm, and have also taken pay cuts.

Although it’s not clear how much was cut from the executives pay, The Independent is reporting that seven of the top echelon at Sony saw their pay checks slashed and have agreed to return their bonuses.

This follows a report from Nikkei claiming Nintendo will cut its executive bonuses by 20 percent after the company saw its first loss in history earlier this year, and continued poor sales performance.

    this is not exactly a shock, its not like nintendos position where FY losses were more of a surprise!
