A recent report provided by Glassdoor shows that while Google and Apple CEOs are receiving high employee approval levels, employees at Microsoft and Yahoo! are not very pleased with their leaders.
Glassdoor is an online career community where people anonymously share insider information relating to jobs, salaries, and the companies that employ them. The report is an accumulation of data gathered over the past 12 months.
Figures show that Eric Schmidt, CEO for Google, leads the way with a 96 per cent approval rating, which represents a three per cent rise from 2010. Ironically, the results, which are a record high for Mr Schmidt, come shortly after his handing the company reins over to Googles co-founder Larry Page.
Second in line is Steve Jobs, who comes in with a 95 per cent approval rating. However, unlike Schmidt, who saw a rise, Mr Jobs rating is actually three per cent lower than it was this time last year.
On the other end of the scale from Schmidt and Jobs are Carol Bartz and Steve Ballmer, CEOs at Yahoo! and Microsoft respectively. Ms Bartz approval rating fell from 77 per cent to 50 per cent while Mr Balmer saw a drop of six per cent, hitting the lowest of the bunch at 40 per cent.
Ironically, the two biggest losers in this popularity contest recently saw their companies join up in an attempt to take on Google. Yet, despite this effort, they have both seen major drops in employee approval while their outgoing rival continues to provide high levels of employee satisfaction.
