Not bad for 2 months of work

I need a new job.

Robert D. Marcus didn?t want to sell Time Warner Cable when he took over as chief executive in January. Better, he told shareholders, to continue as a standalone company than merge with a competitor. But he must be glad that he managed to strike a $45 billion deal with Comcast.

Mr. Marcus will receive nearly $80 million if the deal closes, a severance payment that amounts to more than $1 million a day in compensation for the less than two months he ran the company before agreeing to sell.
