Glassdoor Reveals the Highest Rated CEOs 2014

LinkedIn's Jeff Weiner, Ford Motor's Alan Mulally and Edelman's Richard Edelman Take Top Honors Among Large Companies

SAUSALITO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, has released its annual report of the Highest Rated CEOs for 2014, which is determined by employee feedback shared during the past year. On Glassdoor, employees voluntarily and anonymously provide their opinion on whether they approve or disapprove of how their CEO is leading the company. This year, Glassdoor has recognized the Highest Rated CEOs at large companies (1,000 or more employees) and for the first time, the Highest Rated CEOs at small and mid-sized companies (fewer than 1,000 employees).

"We find on Glassdoor that a strong leader is often one who has the ability to clearly communicate the vision for the company and who helps employees see how their work connects to the big picture. In addition, top rated CEOs are commonly seen as relatable, accessible and transparent," said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. "I offer my sincerest congratulations to all CEOs recognized on the 2014 Glassdoor report. It is no small feat to gain the support of your employees for your leadership."

On Glassdoor's 2014 list of the Highest Rated CEOs at large companies, the top CEOs represent diverse industries, including tech, auto manufacturing, public relations and retail. The top rated CEO on Glassdoor's 2013 report, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, drops to No. 10 on the 2014 report with a 93 percent approval rating, down six percentage points. Of CEOs appearing on Glassdoor's 2013 and 2014 report, Goldman Sachs' Lloyd Blankfein has seen the most improvement, jumping 28 spots from No. 36 on the 2013 report to No. 8 on the 2014 report with a 94 percent approval rating, increasing nine percentage points since last year.

On the 2014 list of the 25 Highest Rated CEOs at small and mid-sized companies, the top three CEOs all lead tech companies that provide software to help organizations manage and grow business.

Both reports were determined using CEO approval ratings gathered from Glassdoor-approved company reviews collected between February 1, 2013 and January 31, 2014, and are based on reviews from U.S.-based employees. To be considered, at a minimum, CEOs at U.S.-headquartered large companies had to receive at least 100 approved reviews, and CEOs at U.S.-headquartered small and mid-sized companies had to receive at least 30 approved reviews, respectively, during this time frame. For reporting simplicity, CEO approval ratings are displayed to the nearest whole number though ratings extend to the tenth to determine rank. A copy of the Glassdoor company review survey along with complete report methodology is available upon email request to: pr [at] Glassdoor [dot] com.

(1) CORRECTION: Northwestern Mutual CEO John E. Schlifske was originally not included in this report due to a data error. Upon review, Schlifske received a 95% approval rating during the eligibility time frame. He is now included in this report, ranking fourth, as subsequent CEOs on the list decrease one spot in ranking. For clarification, Glassdoor has updated this report and press release to feature 51 CEOs at large companies. We regret this error as Glassdoor is committed to the highest level of data integrity.

(2) Paul Jacobs was the CEO of Qualcomm at the time the report was compiled and therefore current Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf was ineligible for this report.
