I was listening to NPR when they interviewed one of the co-founders of GlassDoor.com, the up and coming site that stores anonymous critiques of companies. He said that Steve Jobs’s approval rate is 97% which is rarely attainable. Across all of their hundreds of thousands of companies with reviews, there are only two other CEOs with a higher rate: General Mills and Bain. The Glass Door co-founder made some interesting points. CEOs with extremely high approval rates have usually been with their companies for at least 20 years. The co-founder went on to quote from a few Apple surveys, including someone who said of Steve Jobs, “He is the Thomas Edison of our time.” I’ll write more on Steve tomorrow.
