Five worst CEO jobs

Finweek English Edition - - INSIDE - BY BRUCE WHIT­FIELD

Why would you not want to be the CEO of your com­pany? There’s the great salary, lu­cra­tive bonus struc­ture and if you join at the right time, you can pick up some share op­tions at the right price. It goes be­yond the de­sir­abil­ity of the cor­ner of­fice, hav­ing the prime park­ing spot right next to the lift into which no other ve­hi­cle would dare tres­pass, there’s the huge sup­port staff – and maybe even the pri­vate loo. Play your cards right and one day they might even put a por­trait of you up in a board­room some­where. It’s the job that most se­nior ex­ec­u­tives with any real am­bi­tion covet. It pro­vides an el­e­ment of cor­po­rate im­mor­tal­ity.

There are some jobs, how­ever, that are not worth even the bloated pay cheque.
