Tim Cook’s Apple employees express approval in his CEO capabilities

Tim Cook has continued to rise in Glassdoor’s annual CEO ratings table. The Apple boss has reached eighth place, moving up two spaces after first hitting the top ten in 2015.

It’s a good week for Apple’s positioning and reach in the business world. Earlier this week it rose to third place in the Fortune 500 list thanks to its skyrocketing revenue, even though it made more profit than first and second place combined.

Here’s the full top ten:

  1. Bob Bechek – Bain & Company
  2. Scott Scherr – Ultimate Software
  3. Dominic Barton – McKinsey & Company
  4. Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook
  5. Jeff Weiner – LinkedIn
  6. Marc Benioff – Salesforce
  7. Sundar Pichai – Google
  8. Tim Cook – Apple
  9. Joseph R. Sivewright – Nestlé Purina PetCare
  10. Jim Whitehurst – Red Hat

Cook’s rise continues thanks to high employee approval ratings. His approval rose two percent this year to 96 percent due to good benefits, professionalism and positive work environment. However, others did raise concerns over difficulties in achieving a balanced work and personal life.
