The UK paper said despite a 38% drop in profits at Goldman Sachs, head of British and European operations Michael Sherwood is receiving a stock award worth $14.4 million, up 60% from last year.

The Guardian said Goldman Sachs did not say if Sherwood received a cash bonus.

The report said Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein could be getting a pay raise that's even more shocking.

The Guardian reported that Blankfein's base pay in 2011 is expected to increase by 233% to $2 million, from $600,000.

Last year, the Blankfein received a stock award of almost $13 million, an increase from $9 million the year before, according to the report.
