For those who don’t know, Glassdoor is a website where a company’s employees (and former employees) can leave anonymous reviews of the company and tell other employees (or prospective employees) what it’s really like to work there.
For the third year in a row, Glassdoor released its ranking of the highest rated CEOs as part of its annual Employees' Choice Awards, which are based on employee reviews posted on Glassdoor between April 22, 2014 and April 21, 2015.
Topping the top 50 in Glassdoor’s list of the highest rated CEOs for 2015 is Google (GOOG) CEO Larry Page, with an approval rating of 97%. Second on the list is Mark Parker from Nike (NKE), who also garnered an approval rating of 97%, and third on the list is Charles Butt from HEB, a grocery store chain based in Texas. Butt earned an approval rating of 96%.
So how many bank CEOs made the top 50 in Glassdoor’s 2015 list of the highest rated CEOs?
According to the Glassdoor list, which can be read in full here, not very many, as it turns out.
Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs (GS) actually comes in at number seven on the list, with an approval rating of 95%.
And that’s it.
There’s not another bank CEO on the list at all, and calling Goldman Sachs a bank is a bit of a reach anyway.
But there’s no Jamie Dimon, no John Stumpf, no Michael Corbat and no Brian Moynihan to be found anywhere in Glassdoor’s top 50.
Apparently the employees of JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), Citibank (C) and Bank of America (BAC) aren’t as excited about their bosses as the folks at Facebook (FB) are of Mark Zuckerberg, who ranked fourth with an approval rating of 95%. Or even Arne Sorenson of Marriott (MAR), who checked in at number 50 with an approval rating of 88%.
There is one other big name in housing on the list though.
Coming in at number 44 on the list is Bill Emerson, the CEO of Quicken Loans. Emerson carries an approval rating of 89%, according to Glassdoor’s list.
This year’s list is a big change from 2014. On last year’s list, Richard Davis of U.S. Bank (USB) ranked twelfth, with an approval rating of 93%, while Richard Fairbank of Capital One (COF) ranked 28th with an approval rating of 88%.
In the list’s first year, Davis actually ranked ninth with an approval rating of 95%. Dimon also made Glassdoor’s initial list in 2013, checking in at number 33, with an approval rating of 87%, Blankfein checked in at 36, with an approval rating of 85%, while Fairbank ranked 38th on the first list, with an approval rating of 84%.
In 2015, on the other hand, it’s Blankfein and Emerson and no one else.
Guess it’s not just the general public that isn’t head-over-heels in love with the big banks. Their employees don’t totally love them either.
