Bonus Round

Dell Technologies Chairman and CEO Michael Dell may have engineered the biggest deal in IT industry history with the blockbuster, $58 billion acquisition of EMC, but the feat didn't get him a raise, or even a bonus during the company's most recent fiscal year.

Dell Technologies' 2017 fiscal year ended Feb. 3, and a recent U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing details how top execs were paid. The filing breaks down pay packages for the company's five highest-paid executives, including Dell, CFO Tom Sweet, infrastructure chief David Goulden, marketing head Jeremy Burton and Howard Elias, head of services and IT.

EMC veterans Goulden, Burton and Elias all received huge stock and option awards connected to the acquisition, and those payments put their pay packages well beyond those of other top executives, although their base salaries seem to be in line with the likes of Vice Chairman Jeff Clarke and President and Chief Commercial Officer Marius Haas.
