Glassdoor have recently published their Top 25 Highest Rated CEOs 2012.
They explain that “The list of top 25 highest rated CEOs is based entirely on feedback from employees who were asked one simple survey question: Do you approve of the way your CEO is leading the company? In the last year alone, more than 280,000 employees rated their CEO on Glassdoor.”
Of the Top 25 eight are from the technology sector and Glassdoor have provided a separate graphic for these companies.You can get more detail by company from their site:
In addition to the CEO rankings employees are also asked to anonymously rank their employer/company on eight different criteria from Compensation & benefits through Work/life balance basically on a 1-5 (highest) scale. Glassdoor then come up with an average and (on the technology companies) an overall description of either employees “say its “OK” “ or “are satisfied” as the higher opinion. The top 4 in our table get the higher employee opinion.
We’ve tabulated the top 10 technology company rankings by category (using today’s data) and simply totaled them. Google comes out on top with Apple at # 3. amazon moves up the table from 10 to 7.

Whilst on the subject of amazon and its CEO, Jeff Bozos, we were interested to note that emanating from one of his hobbies he reckons he has located the Apollo 11 engines 14,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic and will be attempting to recover them. His post was dated 28 March so we are taking his word for it!
