Apple employees rate Tim Cook as most beloved executive across all industries
Tim Cook might never grow to be the transformational, historical figure that Steve Jobs was, but this doesn’t stop Apple’s chief executive officer to be loved by employees, probably even more than Jobs. 

After his first 10 months as CEO, Cook is already the most beloved executive by Cupertino employees not only in tech, but across all industries.

Anonymous Apple employee rankings showed that Cook’s approval rating is at the sky-high 97%, which is actually 2% better than Steve Jobs’ rating in his final year. Cumulatively, though, Jobs had the same rating when he quit his role as Apple CEO.

Under Cook, Apple shares surged in value and the company cemented its place as the world’s most valuable. It had another record quarter with 37 million iPhone sold most recently.

The survey places Tim Cook known for his disciplined management of Apple inventory above all other tech giant leaders including Google’s Larry Page and Qualcomm’s Paul Jacobs.

What do you think of Cook's achievements in the ten-month period that's passed, do you share Cupertino employees’ evaluation?

"After his first 10 months as CEO, Cook is already the most beloved executive by Cupertino employees not only in tech, but across all industries."
so i guess apple has patented 97% & above approval ratings for a CEO accross all indistries. it means you cant rate your CEO 97% or above because in that case you would be stealing the feel of apple survey which is revolutionary and magical.

now i honestly think he is another greedy a$$**** after ijobs.

Holy hell, Apple employees think their boss is the best boss on the whole wide world? Who would've thunk it?

Besides, if they get caught saying someone else is the best, they get fired. Good luck to that 3%

Arsene Wenger once made a great similar quote: "every man thinks his own wife at home is the prettiest"

It says it's anonymous and also not conducted by Apple...so how is there really a threat of being fired? Also...when was the last time you thought your boss was awesome? That rarely happens for me...and the vast majority of people who deal with middle management...

Funny you say that,reminds me of this attorney I dealt with the other day. Seemed very amiable,even likable. Then a few hours later tried to legally rip my head off in court. And this crap about "voting" him the bestest ever boss in the whole wide world looks like the epitome of ass kissing to me!!
Cook’s approval rating is at the sky-high 97%??? Sounds like an election in Cuba.

aww how sweet. I'm sure Tim Cook is Apple's greatest chef.
He's giving all Apple employees daily hugs. Can't ask for more.
Look at the picture. It's like Tim is saying "Have you had your Apple hug today?"

Hopefully, Apple does not send me to a SlÅv€ camp in China or extends my work day to 93 hours (without iLunch break).

It's just funny to see the amount of hate towards anything Apple by the commenters on PhoneArena. In my eyes he seems like a reasonable chap, caring and loyal to his workers.

Hmm... Apple wouldn't wouldn't have stacked the deck with positive votes for Tim Cook like they did with the voting on nano-SIM standardization, would they?

Between him and Jobs, from the looks of it, id take cook any day. Thank god thats not my choice in life. I dont trust him. Jobs wouldnt of put him in charge if he wasnt willing to follow the Jobs dream closely.
That said, he has made some minor improvements to the company's extreme greed culture, and unlike jobs, he is at least doing some photo ops in china... if that turns into anything substantial, we still have to wait n see.

I'm happy to see that the pollsters that used to report Saddam Hussein's fair and balanced election results have found new employment doing employee surveys for Apple...

so wait, were the foxconn employees (the ones that survived that is) surveyed as well?

Cruel jokes aside though, good for him, I'd love to have his job right now

Of course they do. He probably doesn't walk through the halls yelling at them, belittling them and threatening them. It's like a whole new world at Apple, compared to what they used to know. If you've been force fed gruel every day for years, a Big Mac will taste like filet mignon.

While I'm no Apple fan, I'm not surprised that its employees are fans of their CEO. For one thing, he's got to be a massive contrast to their former CEO. For another thing, for Apple to be the biggest and most profitable company (of its size) in the US, they have to be doing something right. I don't begrudge them some admiration. I just think their phones suck compared to Android.
