Apple employees raise Tim Cook to 8th place in Glassdoor CEO rankings
An anonymous poll of employees at Apple has given Chief Executive Tim Cook a 96 percent approval rating, ranking him No. 8 among U.S. companies surveyed for Glassdoor's annual Employees' Choice Awards.
The jobs and recruiting website revealed its latest 2016 CEO rankings this week placing Cook in the top 10 in America for the second year in a row. Last year, Apple's CEO ranked number 10, while in the two previous years he came in at number 18.
The awards are based on anonymous feedback from employees who voluntarily complete a company review approving or disapproving their CEO's performance. The review also asks about the quality of jobs, work environment and employer treatment over the past year.
Rated by 4,331 Apple employees, Cook ranked eighth among the 50 highest rated CEOs. Topping the list was Bob Bechek, CEO of Bain Capital in Boston, Mass., with a 99 percent approval rating.
In the job satisfaction survey of 7,379 employees, Apple employees rated the company highly for benefits, a stimulating work environment and collegiality. Complaints centered on a lack of work-life balance and long hours.
Other noteworthy CEOs on the list include Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook (No. 4), Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn (No. 5), Sundard Pichai of Google (No. 7), John Legere of T-Mobile USA (No. 12), and Shantanu Narayen of Adobe (No. 20).
