Thumbs up for bonuses!
Schmidt served as Google's CEO from 2001 to 2011, and is now executive chairman.
Schmidt is set to receive $100 million in restricted stock that will vest over four years beginning in 2015, and as well as a $6 million cash bonus. It's safe to say he doesn't really need the money -- Forbes pegged his net worth at $8.3 billion as of September.
He also received a $100 million bonus when he stepped down from the CEO job three years ago.
