Wall Street Compensation: 2010

In: Employment Finance Interactive Source: WSJ Stock Market

2 Feb 2011

The interactive tree-map has a nice introduction of how it works, but it would have been nice to be able to drill down further to firm level data. On the two bottom graphs, they could have combined them using the same scale so it was easier to view the revenue/profit/compensation ratios. (related article)
