Turns out C-Suite compensation increases in the past year weren’t much greater than what the rank-and-file employees in the U.S. received. A Mercer analysis of 240 public company compensation data showed that increases by type of compensation and by size of company were in the same range as for employees overall: 3-5 percent.

Long-term incentive pay grew by 4 percent in 2013 vs. 2012. Long-term incentives comprised two-thirds of total compensation. The median compensation package was $9.6 million, the median long-term incentive component just under $6.5 million.
