Mr. Jobs has a pretty loyal following amongst Apple employees. Why else would they work those long hours for mediocre pay? Jordan Golson tapped Glassdoor, the salary and employer review site, to see just how much love Apple employees had for fearless leader. They rate Apple and Jobs vs other technology industry companies and their leaders.
It turns out that Jobs gets 91% approval vs. 3% disapproval while AT&T’s (who currently are having union issues incidentally) Randall Stephenson gets 30% approval against 35% disapproval. While Jobs leads CEOs in approval, Apple trails behind companies like Google and Adobe overall.
There just might be a correlation between customer satisfaction and employee approval.
