I would. If my severance is anything like this, as much as I love my job and what I do...I'd suffer through it...
Yahoo recently fired its COO Henrique de Castro after only 15 months on the job. What did he get for all his time served?? You won't believe it!
De Castro's severance package is worth $58-million. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer fired de Castro go after he failed to revive Yahoo's declining ad revenue. His enormous severance figure was something that Yahoo put in his contract in order to lure him away from Google. The amount of his severance was also tied in to Yahoo's stock, which doubled during de Castro's time with the company.
