NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Which tech CEO is best in the U.S.?
The CEOs of more than a dozen well-known technology companies, including Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) are not only beloved by investors for delivering value, but also by their employees.
Glassdoor's third annual Employees' Choice Awards for the 50 Highest Rated CEOs for 2015 identified the best leaders in various industries including technology, finance, manufacturing, travel and tourism, among others.
The ranking is based solely on the input of employees (between Apr. 22, 2014 and Apr. 21, 2015) who anonymously and voluntarily provide feedback via the Glassdoor company review surveys, which "encourages feedback on whether they approve or disapprove of how their CEO is leading the company, along with insight into their job, work environment and company," the online jobs review site said.
CEOs considered for the large company list must have received at least 100 reviews, said Glassdoor said, which also put out a list of the 50 highest rated small and medium company CEOs.
