    The Top 10 Tech Company CEOs

    The following executives, rated by employees as the top 10 tech company CEOs, exemplify the qualities needed to be a great leader, including vision and empathy.

What makes a great tech company CEO? They must have leadership qualities and vision, of course. Then, there's the ability to pump up employees' spirits—whether during a major presentation in an auditorium, a small gathering in a conference room or an impromptu exchange in the hallway—so they feel compelled to give their very best every day. In addition, they should be eager to engage employees at their level, going beyond business issues to get to know them as individuals. The following leaders exemplify these qualities, which is why they're listed as the top 10 tech company CEOs, as ranked by Glassdoor. The list was compiled from a larger "Employees' Choice Awards" selection of the "Highest Rated CEOs in 2016." CEOs were selected based on a ratings formula that takes into account the quantity and consistency of company reviews from employees posted on the site, with each included company required to have at least 100 employee reviews and no less than 100 CEO approval ratings from staffers. These CEOs "stand out for having gained the support and approval of their workforce—no easy task for any leader," said Robert Hohman, CEO and co-founder of Glassdoor. In addition to the list of CEOs and their Glassdoor approval rating, we're including selected employee comments about the CEOs and/or overall company leadership. (Some employee remarks were lightly edited in the interest of clarity and conciseness.)
