“A survey taken over the last year by Glassdoor, a jobs and career community that allows users to anonymously share an inside look at jobs and companies, confirms that Eric Schmidt looks better when he’s on his way out,” Rip Empson reports for TechCrunch. “As the Google big whig prepares to step down from a decade of service as chief exec, his employee approval rating is at an all time high.”
“Apple Man Steve Jobs remains as popular as ever, though his approval rating did drop from 98 percent to 95 percent. I’m sure when the iPhone 5 comes out, he’ll be right back on top,” Empson reports.
“As to how Glassdoor CEO approval ratings are calculated, the site takes the pulse of a company’s employees similar to the way in which presidential approval ratings are tallied,” Empson reports. “Employees are simply asked, ‘Do you approve of the way your CEO is leading the company?'”
