Sorry, Mark Zuckerberg, employees no longer rate you No. 1

Today, the career company Glassdoor released its report on 2014's Highest Rated CEOs. The company calls itself "the world's most transparent career community" and it boasts more than 6 million company reviews.

This year the best CEO report was broken down into two: One was for the 50 companies with over 1,000 employees, and another for the top 25 CEOs for companies with fewer than 1,000 employees. The top CEOs are based on Glassdoor reviews submitted by their employees between Feb. 1, 2013, and Jan. 31, 2014. These ratings represnt the feelings of employees who post reviews on Glassdoor -- sample size for each company may vary.


Last year Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was rated No. 1 on Glassdoor with a 99 percent approval rating. This year he has slipped to 93 percent employee approval. LinkedIn did not even appear on last year's list, but this year CEO Jeff Weiner got a 100 percent Glassdoor approval rating.

Scrolling through the top 50 CEO list is another confirmation of the lack of diversity among those who hold company top spots. There were only two women on the list, and very few people of color. See where the CEOs stack up; the full list can be found at Glassdoor.
