Apple CEO Tim Cook falls from 1st to 18th in Glassdoor’s tech CEO rankings

“Apple employees who reviewed their CEO on say they still like Tim Cook — just less than they liked him last year,” Julianne Pepitone reports for CNN Money.

“Glassdoor, which collects employees’ reviews of their companies and ranks their leaders by approval rating, said Cook dropped to 18th on the list of most-liked tech CEOs in 2013,” Pepitone reports. “Last year, Cook not only topped the tech CEO list, he was also No. 1 on Glassdoor’s list of CEOs across all industries.”

Pepitone reports, “Cook’s approval rating fell four percentage points from a year ago, though it stands at still-strong 93%… Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg catapulted to No. 1.”
