Mark Zuckerberg Just Slid Six Spots to No. 10 on Glassdoor’s List of Highest-Rated CEOs

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was No. 38, but not for Twitter—for Square

The good news for Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg: His approval rating of 98 percent in Glassdoor’s list of Highest-Rated CEOs for 2017 was up 1 percent from last year.

The bad news: Zuckerberg slipped six spots, coming in at No. 10 in 2017, down from No. 4 in 2016.

Zuckerberg was the fifth-rated tech CEO, and Glassdoor said he is one of only four CEOs to crack its list for five consecutive years.

The 2017 leader for large companies was The Clorox Co.’s Benno Dorer, with an approval rating of 99 percent. Other notable members of the list were:

Interestingly, Dorsey made the list for Square, and not the other company he leads, Twitter.

Also, Sprout Social CEO Justyn Howard finished atop the list for small and midsized businesses, with a 99 percent approval rating.

Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman said in a release announcing the results:

CEOs tell us the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award is one of the highest honors they can receive because it truly reflects employee opinion about the job they do every day. I congratulate all of the winners on this significant honor. We know that CEO approval ratings correlate to overall employee satisfaction and trust in senior leadership, which contributes to long-term employee engagement, ultimately helping an employer’s recruiting and retention efforts.
