    particularly institutional shareholders.

    In publicly traded companies, non-founder CEOs are employees - not even glorified employees, they literally are employees.

    It is time to start treating them that way - raises commensurate with how well they do, and shitcan their butts when they're not up to the job, no golden parachutes.

    Tired of seeing paid employees, who didn't make the investment risks, hollowing out all the value of a company in their stock options, and then leaving it in disgrace (with their millions in severance) when they can't do the job.

    I'm not talking about founder CEOs.... the Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffets of the world - these guys IMO are owed some deference and bring a lot of value to the table in that their entrepreneurial nature has been demonstrated.

    I'm talking about the paid vulture type.
