“Apple CEO Tim Cook today moved up several spots in an annual ranking of the top chief executives in the U.S., climbing eights spots and breaking into the Top 10 for the first time,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.
MacDailyNews Note: Actually, Cook topped Glassdoor’s list in 2012 with a 97% approval rating.
In 2015, “Cook (No. 10) received an average approval rating of 94% from Apple employees — current and former — on Glassdoor, an online jobs and careers website, between April 2014 and April 2015,” Keizer reports. “That was an increase of two percentage points, which in Glassdoor’s rating system is not statistically significant.”
“The rise in the rankings was, however,” Keizer reports. “As in previous Glassdoor CEO rankings, Cook remained behind several other technology CEOs, including Google’s Larry Page (No. 1), who posted a 97% approval rating; Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg (No. 4); and Scott Scherr (No. 5), who heads human resources and payroll software maker Ultimate Software.”
