Zynga aims to retain execs with higher salaries, bonuses

Friday, 5th April 2013 10:55 GMT By Dave Cook

Zynga has reportedly shaken up its bonus and salary schemes in a bid to keep executives from jumping ship, following recent top tier departures such as OMGPop founder Dan Porter. In some cases execs will see wages doubled.

Joystiq reports that the new system will come into effect at some point this year, and that bonuses will now be tied to an individual’s performance, which could see a significant pay-out for some employees.

Zynga co-founder Mark Pincus has also lowered his personal salary to $1 million and has deemed himself ineligible for bonuses under the new scheme.

It comes as the company moves into real-money gambling apps in an effort to curb dipping profits, as signposted by last year’s poor financial report.

What do you make of the above. Let us know below.

    @1, When you say “developers/workers”, I think the term you are looking for is cannon fodder.
