This Is a Popularity Contest
Bloomberg ranked CEOs at U.S.-based public companies based on an anonymous survey of employees conducted by the jobs website Glassdoor, which maintains a database of six million company reviews. Among the questions: Do you approve of the way your CEO is leading the company?
Included were companies with at least 1,000 employees as of January 2014, at least 100 ratings from employees between Feb. 1, 2013, and Jan. 31, 2014, and at least 40 ratings between Feb. 1, 2012, and Jan. 31, 2013.
Separately, Bloomberg calculated the total return of each company's shares for the year ended Jan. 31, 2014, the survey's last day.
