Steve Jobs on CEO survey
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has placed near the top in a list of most-liked bosses, according to the user review site Glassdoor. In compiling its first annual CEO rankings, the site lists Jobs in second place with a 90 percent approval rating; to qualify for the list a company must have at least 50 reviews, and Apple presently has over 290. Number one in the rankings -- at 93 percent -- is Art Levinson of the biotechnology firm Genentech, who also sits on Apple's board of directors.
Other corporations with executives in the top 10 include the likes of Adobe, Google, NVIDIA and NetApp. The worst CEO, reviews suggest, is Office Depot's Steve Odland, who has a positive approval rating of just 4 percent, and a separate disapproval rating of 80 percent. Notable tech companies in the bottom 10 include AOL, eBay, Motorola and Sun Microsystems.
