From the PharmaGossip blog via Bloomberg's, retiring J&J CEO William C. Weldon will receive a retirement package worth $143.5 M -- yes -- that's GREENBACKS.
And that's why this man is smiling today. That's a long way from the pay he received as a sales rep back in 1971 when he joined the company. Wow! Just think what he might have earned if J&J had been able to make artificial hips, otc medicines and vaginal mesh products over the past couple years.
Then we might have been talking some real money.
