    Apple CEO Tim Cook earned more than $15 million in salary in 2018 according to the 2018 proxy statement Apple filed with the SEC today.

    Cook earned a base salary of $3 million along with $12 million in incentives awarded for performance-based reasons, and another $682,000 in unspecified "Other Compensation." Cook earned a total of $3 million more than he did in 2017.

    Cook's listed salary does not include stock awards that he received in 2018, and when taking that into account, he earned an additional $121 million. In the future, Cook is set to receive stock worth upwards of $189 million as shares vest.

    Other Apple executives received a base salary of $1 million, along with bonuses of more than $25 million. Angela Ahrendts, Jeff Williams, Luca Maestri, and Kate Adams, Apple's general counsel, all earned over $26 million in 2018, stock awards included.

    All Apple executives are earning well over the median salary at Apple, which was $55,426 owing to the large number of retail and support employees that work for Apple. At almost $16 million, Cook earns 283 times what the median Apple employees do.

    Apple's full proxy statement contains additional salary details, proposals that will be voted on at the shareholders meeting in March, and information on Apple's achievements in 2018, such as reaching 100 percent renewable energy in its global facilities, shipping the two billionth iOS device, launching the Everyone Can Create curriculum, and more.

    Timmy's got a good job. Maybe if it opens up, I'll apply for it.

    No stock options in that year. When he gets them, it is a LOT more.

    Now if only these execs would pay their fair share in taxes. Flat tax for everyone. He can pay 20% of his total income for the year, and I’ll pay mine. Though my $400 won’t add much to the American infrastructure issues at hand. But theirs might?

    He also got about $120 million worth of Apple stock in August.

    That wasn’t reported as compensation for 2018 because it was from an RSU grant he originally received in 2011.

    He did receive stock as part of his compensation in 2018. (Apple does RSUs though, not stock options.) At the time his shares vested in August, they were worth about $120 million.

    If Mr. Cook only had to pay 20% in income taxes on the compensation he gets from Apple, that would likely represent quite a large reduction in his taxes. He had over $60 million withheld for tax purposes back in August when his shares vested.

    .....Which doesn’t include stock awards either. It’s a lot more than just 15 million.

    If you worked for the money (sure you may not like his method or running Apple) then you worked for it. It’s yours. Anyone with the work ethic can become CEO. Limiting people’s earnings will not change a thing.

    That’s seriously it? 15 million? That’s it?

    No sarcasm. He’s running the biggest company in the world. I figured it’d be closer to 30.

    Seriously, it's not like the company has been making crazy amounts of money under him, or even became the first trillion dollar company last year under him.
