I think Neumann's package, especially the $185 million "consulting fee", was particularly disgusting and outrageous.

That said, I think 4 months of severance is quite generous, so not sure what these folks are complaining about.




To be clear, his package was to relinquish control of the company. It’s not like he was laid off. He had tremendous leverage and used it.

It’s really shitty that people are being laid off. With four months and a still-booming job market, hopefully they’ll find somewhere quickly with a short break in between to reset.

why? It's not like he took it from you or me. Softbank bet on him and lost. Oh well.


From what I thought employees took part in the Ponzi as well...they thought (and the HR helped them thinking) that the public market will take the bs of Adam, and they can sell their shares.


That severance is way above the market rate of nothing
