Google CEO Sundar Pichai's total earnings in 2018, after calculating older stock that vested, topped $470 million in 2018, according to the latest proxy statement from Google's parent company, Alphabet.
The big picture: Pichai's compensation is one of the highest of 2018, surpassing the $302 million Netflix CEO Reed Hastings took home. Pichai has now made $878 million since 2015. Alphabet's stock price stayed above $1,000 per share in 2018, even as Google faced criticism over antitrust concerns and user privacy.
