Zynga Tries Motivating Executives With Money

It may not be an innovative strategy (this is Zynga we're talking about), but the company is attempting to stem the steady outpouring of executive talent by offering bigger bonuses.

Things haven't been great for Zynga lately, with lawsuits and resigning execs. To smooth things out, the company revealed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it plans to offer larger performance-based bonuses to its executives. With any luck, the higher earning potential will stop the higher-ups at the company from heading for the door.

Zynga CEO Marc Pincus (who won a dubious honor last year) is not among those making more money; his annual salary was reduced to $1, an approach taken by other big-name leaders like Steve Jobs.
