Tim Armstrong Just Opened A Meeting By Giving 150 AOL Execs $10,000 Bonuses

AOL hosts a "global operating meeting" twice a year.


It's holding one right this very moment in New York to firm up the company's plans for 2012.

A couple sources tells us that Tim Armstrong just opened the meeting by giving everyone in attendance about 150 execs a $10,000 bonus on the spot.

"About $1.5 million just for showing up!" says our incredulous source.

*end of quote*

Two thoughts: 1%, anyone ? And AOL execs getting a $10K bonus ?

2. I can't believe AOL is still making money.

1% is right, do we have the names of these 150?
