Due to these public filings, the financial compensation for directors at Enron became widely known: "directors received $350,000 a year to attend a handful of meetings. Half collected thousands more as highly paid consultants to the giant energy trader. Others accepted multi-million-dollar donations from the company for nonprofit organizations where they worked."
