Before Facebook went public Mark Zuckerberg was already a pretty popular CEO among his employees. After the Facebook IPO was a complete disaster employees still stood beside their co-founding leader. One year later the Facebook IPO has recovered much of its value and Zuckerberg is more popular with employees than ever before.
According to jobs website Glassdoor Mark Zuckerberg now commands a 99% approval rating at Facebook. That approval rating is based off anonymous employee reviews sent in to Glassdoor for consideration.
In the past Zuckerberg had received four 100% approval ratings in four quarters of operation. In the year leading up to the IPO the Zuck’s rating temporarily fell to 95%. In Q1 2013 Zuckerberg was still sitting at a 96% rating before shooting back up in a recent survey
Not only have employees warmed back up to Zuckerberg, in general they are happier at Facebook than they were in the year leading up to the company’s IPO. Employees rank their time at Facebook over the last year at 4.7 (out of 5) compared to 4.6 the year prior.
Are you surprised by Zuckerberg’s and Facebook’s high approval rating?
