Apple Workers: Tim Cook Beats Steve Jobs ...but just barely, according to new ranking By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Mar 30, 2012 12:08 PM CDT 11 comments Comments Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks before introducing the new iPad during an event in San Francisco, Wednesday, March 7, 2012. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma) (Newser) – Tim Cook had some big shoes to fill as Apple CEO, but it looks like he's managing. According to a poll on Glassdoor.com, some 97% of employees approve of the new boss' work over the past year—an even higher proportion than the 95% who approved of Steve Jobs the year before. Of course, Cook is probably benefiting from a "honeymoon period," GigaOm notes. Cook leads tech CEOs with the highest approval rating on Glassdoor; Paul Jacobs of Qualcomm and Larry Page of Google round out the top three.
