Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg must be a swell guy for which to work. That seems to be the case when the annual survey of the Top 50 CEOs in America is presented by Glassdoor. Glassdoor gathers employee feedback from various companies over an entire year – in this case, from Feb. 24 of 2012 to Feb. 24 of 2013 – and ranks the top CEOS according to the percentage of those employees that approve of the job the CEO is doing.
On the top-50 list are companies from various sectors – tech, retail, communications, manufacturing, apparel and grocery, among others. Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) chief Zuckerberg has apparently won over more employees in the past year, as his 99-percent approval rating this year is up 14 percentage points from last year. And last year’s top CEO, Tim Cook of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) lost four percentage points off his approval rating to 93 percent, which dropped him to No. 18 on the list in 2013. On this year’s list, just 17 CEOs are the same as on the 2012 listing.
Besides Zuck of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) and Cook, other tech CEOs that made the list include Paul Jacobs of QUALCOMM Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) at No. 8, Larry Page of Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) at No. 11, Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) at No. 16, Hans Vestberg of Ericsson (ADR) (NASDAQ:ERIC) at No. 17, Paul Otellini of Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) at No. 21, Brad Smith of Intuit Inc. (NASDAQ:INTU) at No. 23, Scott McGregor of Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ:BCOM) at No. 45, Larry Ellison of Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL) at No 46 and Michael Dell of Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) at No. 49.
