When Anup “Rubens” Rubens was the CEO of Paramount Pictures, he was paid an estimated $4 million per year.
By 2018, that figure had plummeted to $300,000 per year, according to a 2016 study from the non-profit advocacy group Media Transparency International.
This was despite the fact that Rubens continued to work at Paramount for seven more years, despite the company’s efforts to eliminate any incentive for executives to work longer hours.
This, as the Financial Times recently reported, could have been because Rubens and his fellow directors of the company were able to earn a lot more money.
That’s because the compensation of the top management at the company is set at a much higher rate than the rest of the workforce.
This is due to the way the company has set up the compensation structure, in which the top executives have the same annual pay for the first five years of their tenure as the rest do.
But in 2018, Rubens earned just $1.6 million from Paramount Pictures.
The number for the rest-of-the-corporation average is $5.1 million.
That puts the former CEO at a far more comfortable financial position than his peers at smaller film studios.
Remunerations of the most prominent executives in the entertainment industry are currently set at about $40 million annually, according the Center for Media Justice.
Even after the latest study, Ruben’s pay was still less than his fellow CEOs at other companies, like Disney.
That suggests that he is actually getting paid much less than the average CEO in Hollywood, according TOI.
Rubens is one of the many high-profile CEOs who are still earning significantly more than their peers in the industry.
And if they are, it’s not because of a massive pay cut or some other big deal.
It’s because they have managed to remain in their jobs.
That was the conclusion of a new report by the nonprofit group Media & Media Law, which reviewed nearly 400 interviews with senior executives in Hollywood and found that executives at some of the biggest Hollywood studios are making much more than the people they replaced.
The report, titled Hollywood’s High Paying Cuts, Is Still Real, Says a Lawyer: A Legal Perspective, found that the median executive at Warner Bros. was making an average of $18.7 million in 2018.
The median executive in Fox was making $19.7, and Disney was making more than $21 million.
At Disney, the executive was getting an average salary of $24.7.
And at Paramount, it was $26.3 million.
But executives at Universal were making $17.7 and $22.3, respectively.
The biggest payouts were to the executives who have kept their jobs, who had the largest raises.
The top earners, according in the study, were the top five executives at Disney, Warner Bros., Paramount, Fox and Disney: Disney, $1,847,500; Warner Bros, $2,891,000; Paramount, $3,052,000.
That $3 million figure was more than double what the median Disney executive made in 2018 and was well above the median annual salary of all the other executives in that company.
The study did find that the top 10 executives in Disney were paid a combined total of $7 million over the past three years.
Disney’s executive, Jeff Robinov, was also the highest-paid in the company at $12.7 billion, according Media &s; Media L.A. The other top earners at Disney were the highest paid in all of the other studios, with a combined average salary over the same three years of $16.5 million.
Among the other top executives at Warner Brothers, Tom Rothman was paid $3.2 million, with Michael De Luca, Kevin Tsujihara and Jeff Robinow also making the top ten.
Warner Bros.’s top 10 execs were each paid a total of about $8 million over three years, according Toi.
“We don’t want people to think that because they’re not in the top, they’re in the bottom, and that’s what the industry is,” said Tom Roth, the head of Warner Bros’ studios.
“The bottom of the barrel is still getting the lion’s share of the pie, and the top of the line is still going to make more money.”
Roth told Toi that Warner Bros.-related executives’ pay packages had been reduced to compensate for the fact they have been replaced.
That is, the companies have reduced their compensation to reflect the fact these executives no longer have the ability to negotiate and get raises.
So, in order to keep their positions, executives are not being compensated for the value they add to the companies. And that
