A look inside the daily routine of Sundar Pichai, who made $199 million last year and just cut his vacation short to deal with a leaked Google memo (GOOGL)


There was massive fallout at Google this week after senior engineer James Damore released a controversial memo.

The situation snowballed from there, forcing Google CEO Sundar Pichai to cut his family vacation short.

“The past few days have been very difficult for many at the company, and we need to find a way to debate issues on which we might disagree — while doing so in line with our Code of Conduct,” Pichai wrote in a company-wide memo.

Pichai, who was appointed to CEO in 2015 and is largely beloved by employees, made $199 million in 2016. His compensation was mostly in stock, not salary, according to Business Insider.

Here’s a look inside the daily routine of man at the helm of Google:

Pichai may run an internet behemoth, but he’s old school about the way he consumes the news. “Believe it or not, I read a physical paper every morning,” he told Recode. Pichai always reaches for a print copy of the Wall Street Journal and checks The New York Times online.

While he’s reading, Pichai usually eats an omelet for breakfast. The Chennai, India native also keeps up what he calls his “very English” habit of drinking a cup of tea.
