But I want more!

This was his first CEO position and he had done a truly stellar job of getting the “problematic” credit union back in the black in only two years. Accolades went out from the board, management team, and employees. Still, the young CEO was greatly disappointed in his $48,000 salary increase, which put him at 92% of the midpoint. After all, he’d put two years into the job and achieved his goals.The analysts were ordered to make sure the market rate was truly accurate. The board vehemently assured the CEO that he was exceeding expectations and they had nothing but great respect for their new trailblazer. “What should we do? “cried the Chairman. Some of the board said “Give him what he wants. He might leave us for a better opportunity.” Other board members said, “If we cave, we are setting a precedent and he will never be satisfied.”So, they called in the Great Fairy Consultant who asked what their compensation philosophy was. “It’s to be competitive to the market!”, they said in unison. After looking into all the credible surveys of the land, she confirmed their established salary range was indeed accurate and a 92% compa ratio after only two years of experience is aggressive, but in alignment with excellent performance.” “But he is still not happy!” exclaimed the incoming Chairman.  “It feels good to make people happy, reflected the Great Fairy Consultant, “but people whose happiness is based on always getting what they want are difficult to keep happy, even if you achieve it in the short run. Situational ethics can get you in trouble. What if the next CEO is a member of a protected class and you pay them differently for reasons that have nothing to do with their gender or class status? Discrimination could be alleged. Follow the yellow brick road to your guidelines and you will find your answer.” “Make him like us and be happy with our salary increase and bonus”, they angrily demanded. “Ok, lets have him take a bite of this beautiful red apple” replied the Great Fairy Consultant. “Will that really work?”, asked the board. “Of course not, you Sillies.” laughed the Great Fairy Consultant. “Own your compensation philosophy or change it.”After reviewing his total cash compensation, it was noted that his short-term annual bonus was less than what an average performing CEO would be compensated and his performance scorecard required a nearly perfect performance level to get an average salary increase. They recreated his scorecard, increased his short-term bonus to be more in alignment with the market and moved the midpoint to the 60th percentile to be more competitive; still paying his base pay at 92%. “Often times it is the ambiguity of how the salary increase and bonus are determined that is the real problem,” explained the Great Fairy Consultant. The new CEO found the new plan “ moderately acceptable for the time being” and they all lived happily ever after, until the next year. The Endlast_img read more

Or rather, to Freeform with Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and its found its two leads.The company announced Monday that Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph will be playing Tandy Bowen (Dagger) and Tyrone Johnson (Cloak) respectively.Holt is best known for her work on the Disney Channel and Disney XD in shows like Kickin’ It and I Didn’t Do It. Joseph, a relative newcomer, recently starred in The Night Of.“Marvel is delighted to have found our Cloak and Dagger,” Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television said in a press release. “Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph encompass the true essence of the characters, and we are excited for the audience to see them in these roles.”For the uninitiated, Cloak and Dagger are a Marvel superhero duo that encompasses the abilities of light and dark. Cloak can become intangible and can transport himself and others through a dark dimension. Dagger can create pointed projectiles of light and can also use that light for healing.The two are known as runaways who met when they were teenagers and developed a strong bond before they even gained their powers, so the light and dark metaphor covers a lot of ground. Depending on which comic you’re talking about, they either got their powers from an experimental drug, or they had them all along, or it was a demon.Cloak and Dagger (2010) #1 Courtesy MarvelThe official synopsis for the show will keep the bulk of this origin, specifically when it comes to the characters’ back stories and personalities. Tandy once came from a privileged family but ran away after a storm destroyed her life. Tyrone is described as somebody who “wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid.”“The characters of Tandy and Tyrone have always stood out to me ever since I first met them in the pages of Marvel comics when I was a boy,” said showrunner Joe Pokaski. “When Olivia and Aubrey read for the roles, these characters leapt off the page. We’re so excited to see what these talented young actors bring to the Marvel Universe.”The Cloak & Dagger series has been moving slowly since it was greenlit last April. Although, according to Deadline, the idea for a Cloak and Dagger show has been in the works for five years. Since then, there’s been little news from the production.last_img read more
