According to a survey of about 1,000 Apple employees by the employment review and ratings site Glassdoor, 97% of them approve of the way Steve Jobs led Apple, making him one of the most successful CEOs among the ones rated at the site, among companies both within the tech industry and outside it.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos enjoys an 84% approval rating among his employees while 54% of the people in the Microsoft troop express dissatisfaction at the way Steve Ballmer is running the software company. Google’s newly minted CEO Larry Page also enjoys a Jobs-esque 96% approval rating among his employees, although the ratings currently only come from 25 people.

None of the above is surprising, of course, but it’s nice to know that Apple employees think just as highly of its departing CEO as the outside world does.
