According to the report, Zuckerberg lagged behind Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who also received a 94 percent CEO approval rating but came in 46th place overall. On the other hand, the Facebook CEO still managed to come ahead of Apple CEO Tim Cook, whose approval rating was 92 percent, securing him the 69th spot on the list.
However, Cook is one of only two CEOs to remain in the top 100 for all seven years along with Zuckerberg. Other technology CEOs like Adobe's Shantanu Narayen and Microsoft's Satya Nadella bagged the coveted fifth and sixth spots in the list gaining an employee approval rating of 98 percent each.
It may be recalled that when Glassdoor first started ranking CEOs back in 2013, Zuckerberg was ranked the number one CEO in the US, with a 99 percent approval rating.
