(Newser) – It's not much of a surprise that Travis Kalanick was left off Glassdoor's list of the top 100 CEOs, based on opinions from the employees they manage. But what may come as a surprise are those on the top of the list, who inched past Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk. The 10 highest rated CEOs and their approval rating:

  1. Benno Dorer, Clorox Company: 99%
  2. Jim Kavanaugh, World Wide Technology: 99%
  3. Michael F. Mahoney, Boston Scientific: 99%
  4. Craig B. Thompson, Memorial Sloan Kettering: 99%
  5. Martin Rankin, Fast Enterprises: 99%
  6. Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA: 99%
  7. Bob Bechek, Bain & Company: 98%
  8. Elon Musk, SpaceX: 98%
  9. Brian Halligan, HubSpot: 98%
