Bain & Co.'s Bob Becheck tops Glassdoor's survey of the highest rated U.S. CEOs, but tech company executives dominate the list. Fred Katayama reports.
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Apple's Tim Cook made the cut, but the two U.S. CEOs rated most highly by fellow employees are people you may not know. Recruiting website Glassdoor's annual survey found Bob Becheck of management consulting firm Bain & Company was the most popular boss with an employee approval rating that topped 99 percent. In reviews on Glassdoor, many of his employees cited the chance to work with smart people and the work-life balance as reasons they like the firm. Ranking second: Scott Scherr of Ultimate Software. Under his "people first" philosophy, the company pays all health insurance premiums and gives all employees shares of the company's stock, which has risen 28 percent in the last 12 months. Placing third: McKinsey's Dominic Barton. Employees praised the firm on Glassdoor as a great place to learn leadership and be mentored. Others making the top ten were all men and mostly Silicon Valley leaders such as Zuckerberg, Cook, and LinkedIn's Jeff Weiner. The highest ranked woman CEO? At number 17: Lynsi Snyder of California's cultish burger chain, In-N-Out.
