I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE WROTE THIS ARTICLE

Also:

If you do quick math, the $1.6bn comp package Sandberg now has was worth ~$300mm when it was granted by Facebook’s board in March 2008.

The board hired her for COO role with a $300mm compensation package because they thought she could build a massive business at Facebook, including a supporting organization.

She did it — and is now number-two at one of the most valuable companies on the planet. Along the way, she turned that $300mm comp package into a $1.6bn comp package.

Luck this was not.

Also infuriating: one reason why she was “lucky” was that she had the right “mentors”. The whole point of her discourse is to seek out those mentors, which men do more than women. And she did. Again, opposite of luck.
