THE OVERPAID

The report named Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz "the highest-paid CEO at an Overpaid 25 company." Her 2009 compensation was $39 million.

4 of 13

Name: Ronald Hovespian<br />Company: Novell

Hovespian received $5.2 million in total fiscal-year 2009 compensation, low by CEO standards, but the company's underperformance was nonetheless enough to place it on the Overpaid list.

5 of 13

Spring Nextel—and, by extension, CEO Dan Hesse—also made the Overpaid Company list.

6 of 13

Name: Greg Brown and Sanjay Jha, co-CEOs<br />Company: Motorola

Motorola is making its second consecutive appearance on the list.

7 of 13

The report cites Micro Technology's financial losses, despite its executive's steadily rising compensation, as the reason for putting it on the list.

8 of 13

Name: Bill Morrow<br />Company: Clearwire

Clearwire also made the Overpaid list.

9 of 13

Name: Larry Ellison<br />Company: Oracle

Although Oracle has reported robust numbers (especially in comparison to some of the companies on its Overpaid list), Glass Lewis felt obligated to cite the company for the enormous size of its pay packages for top executives, including CEO Ellison and co-President Mark Hurd.

THE UNDERPAID

Name: Jeff Bezos<br />Company: Amazon.com

Jeff Bezos received $81,840 in base salary and $1.7 million "in the incremental cost of security arrangements," enough to put him on the "Underpaid 25" list.
