      Because Amazon is against its workers unionizing.

      If you weren’t being paid competitively you should have left.

      I love how people are so ignorant and think that net worth equals liquid cash that is stashed under some mattress (or like morons like to call it "hoarded" money).

      This is what's going to destroy Amazon. They keep hiring stupid people like this guy, by the minute.

      RSUs are not created out of thin air. They are created from a large pool of authorized shares that decreases slowly as there's always a large portion of cancelled RSUs.

      What you're asking is for Jeff Bezos to somehow decrease his own ownership so they can increase the authorized pool and give your more shares. Basically not that different from asking your manager to give up his own shares to compensate for your perceived low compensation.

      That's never gonna happen.

      Amazon compensation is shitty (or particularly perceived a shitty by some people like you) for two reasons:

      1) Low base salary. Blame Bezos frugality but that has nothing to do with him "hoarding" cash.

      2)Super shitty vesting schedule and/or shitty grants. Then again, blames Bezos for his frugality since the authorized shares pool is large enough for you to maybe get more.

      As a side note. Total shares outstanding plus outstanding stock awards were 497 million and 504 million as of December 31, 2016 and 2017. Source: Amazon's Form 10-K

      I didn't say that. Authorized Pool = RSUs to be granted as compensation. RSUs are not infinite. They have a theoretical end down the line. In the super rare case that happens then the company need to do some kind of repurchase or change their compensations scheme

      @happy? It is sick of you to make fun of someone’s divorce.

      @Justice! I m sorry, if it hurt your feelings but this was more of pun on how Amazon puts so many developers/engineers on PIP.

      Can you please reply why mention of PIP hurt your feelings, while fun/pun made by others is all cool.

      I wonder if he had a prenup.
      I wonder if he will be more focused or more distracted from his goals.
      I wonder if he will be motivated to restore his post divorce net worth.
