Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO and director

Ballmer received compensation valued at $1.38 million in 2011, prompting the company to say he’s underpaid compared to his peers. Ballmer’s total package is up 2% compared to 2010, when he received $1.35 million. Ballmer's 2011 pay package included a $682,500 salary, $685,500 bonus (half of the $1.37 million bonus he was eligible to receive), and a modest $11,915 in perks. At his own request, Ballmer didn't receive any stock awards or option awards. The company, meanwhile, grew revenue and income by 12% and 23%, respectively, in its 2011 fiscal year. Revenue came in at $69.9 billion, up from $62.5 billion in 2010. Net income hit $23.2 billion, up from $18.8 billion in the prior year.
