Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB) Mark Zuckerberg has topped an annual list of the highest-rated CEOs by Glassdoor, a business networking website.
The social media giant founder, who dropped out of Harvard to become a billionaire and one of the biggest names in the tech world, received a 99% approval rating from Glassdoor members for his leadership at Facebook, which underwent a tumultuous IPO last year, PC Magazine noted.
Glassdoor surveys its membership each year to compile its list of the best CEOs. Last year’s top spot was occupied by Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL) Tim Cook. Perhaps not surprisingly, considering Apple’s nose-diving share price, Cook tumbled the eighteenth place in this year’s survey, though he still received a 93% favorable rating.
Other CEOs on the list included QualComm’s (NASDAQ:QCOM) Paul E. Jacobs, Google‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Larry Page, Amazon‘s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Jeff Bezos and Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) Howard Schultz.
In December, Zuckerberg donated $500 million worth of Facebook shares to the Silicon Valley Foundation, a charity promoting education and improved health care around the world.
Shares of Facebook slipped more than 1% in Friday morning trading.
