“You’ve heard of this guy Mark Hurd, right? The Hewlett-Packard CEO forced to resign late last week because of a sexual harassment investigation? Lots of his employees apparently didn’t like him very much,” Caleb Hannan reports for Seattle Weekly. “At least according to his record-low approval rating of 34-percent on Glassdoor.com, a site that lets employees anonymously dish on their bosses.”
“Also not terribly well-liked: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer,” Hannan reports. “At 52-percent Ballmer rates lower than just about every other tech CEO out there not named Hurd.”
MacDailyNews Take: This gives us hope. If 52% of Microsoft employees actually “approve” of Steve Ballmer, maybe the other shareholders are just as misguided and he actually can remain CEO for as long as it takes!
Hannan continues, “[That’s] an especially tough figure to swallow given the near-universal love for his rival, Apple’s Steve Jobs who is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the most beloved boss of all: 98-percent of Glassdoor’s anonymous Apple employees report that they ‘approve’ of Jobs.”

MacDailyNews Take: If you work for Apple and don’t approve of the greatest tech company CEO in history, please quit. You’re too stupid to work for Apple. Try Dell, you’ll fit right in.
