Vikrim Pandit, Citigroup
2011 Compensation: ~$14.9 million
Citigroup (NYSE:C) CEO Vikrim Pandit’s troubles already are out in the open, but you surely couldn’t blame his shareholders for just a little bit of a revolt. Citi’s 0.59% return on assets was paltry, although a 6.31% return on equity was a nice jolt. Investors shook off the cobwebs, though, when they realized they suffered a 44% loss in their shares despite paying Pandit his nearly $15 million package.
