The remaining land is located in a swampy environment, bare and remote area.

Jeremy Goldstein offers to understand to the client on the riddled performance structured pay programs. The use of earnings per share about show how the handling of incentives of an employee is significant. The EPS is among the most significant stock market influencers, therefore, making it essential to the shareholders and is what makes them buy or sell.

Recent studies have pointed out that companies that include the EPS in their overall pay structure make them more successful. Many would argue that EPS is beneficial if added to a business strategy. However, entities can be allowed to leverage EPS to an unfair advantage due to the competitive nature of the market. Those against the EPS have shown that implementation of EPS can cause the favoring CEOS of companies. They believe that the CEOS and Executives are awarded too much power that alters the final results of whether metrics are met or not. The altered metrics can lead to driving the company shares which is misleading and against the law.


Other disadvantages highlighted of the EPS is that the metrics only consider short-term benefits. Therefore, EPS does not provide a sustainable method of supporting the development of the corporation in the long-term. The performance-based pay system is also not advocated as it is ever-changing.
