    Who the heck cares what bs awards this company gets while its executives get rich at the expense of their investors and employees. Now they are going to pay PW full year top salary for doing nothing! after taking more stock options in spite of absolutely pathetic investor performance. The company lost 90% of its value over his tenure and you want to congratulatge them for a couple of awards! Give us a break.
