As part of Glassdoor's company review survey, employees indicate whether they approve or disapprove of the way their CEO is leading the company. Rating and rank in the 50 Highest Rated CEOs list was determined using the average approval rating a CEO received between February 25, 2012 and February 24, 2013. More than half a million company reviews were submitted to Glassdoor over the past 12 months.
