When Yahoo lured Mayer away from her top job at Google, she received a package valued at more than $59 million. A major chunk those payments were granted last year. She is due a one-time payment of $30 million if she remains Yahoo's CEO for five years.

Mayer's compensation last year included stock awards valued at $35 million, including $4.3 million that is now vested. The other awards will vest in stages during the next few years. She also received a pro-rated portion of her $1 million salary and a $1.1 million bonus. The company, which is based in Sunnyvale, Calif., also paid nearly $39,500 to provide Mayer with personal security last year.

The stock awards granted to de Castro last year were valued at $38 million. He also received $84,092 in salary and a $1.1 million bonus that included $1 million to make up for benefits that he gave up when he left his old job at Google.

Google's top-paid executive last year fared even better than Mayer and de Castro. Nikesh Arora, Google's chief business officer, received a package valued at $46.7 million. Meanwhile, Google CEO Larry Page — Mayer's former boss — limited his pay last year to a $1 salary.
