GlassDoor asked about 280,000 employees whether they approved of their CEOs.They’ve compiled a list of the top CEOs in every sector — including tech. GlassDoor checked ratings between March 16 last year and March 15 this year.

It’s no surprise that tech CEOs dominate the list — three of the top 5 CEOs are at large tech companies.

It’s important to remember that GlassDoor is a site where a lot of employees go to complain about their employers.

But some of the CEOS on this list — and their tremendous approval ratings — will probably surprise you.
