While the structure of the compensation is comparable in many companies, the amounts depend on a variety of factors. The sector and size of the company, its organizational structure and international outlook, as well as the number of management board members and their composition are all key factors that play a role in this regard. In addition, the corporate success and the performance of the individual member of the management board affect the amount of the compensation.

  • Basic compensation (fixed salary)
