Bezos Ellison Schmidt Ballmer

Yesterday was Eric Schmidt’s last day as Google CEO, and he went out on a high note.

According to Glassdoor.com, which surveys employees at top tech companies at least 65 times per year, Schmidt was the most popular tech CEO, with a whopping 96% approval rating.

Who’s next? Who’s last?

Who gained the most since last year? And who lost the most?
