Maybe it’s true that you can’t please all the people all the time, but Steve Jobs is a mere 3 percentage points away.

Reviews from nearly 1,000 Apple employees put the departing CEO’s approval rating at 97 percent, according to data released today by the employment review and ratings site That makes him one of the highest-rated CEOs not only in the tech industry but across all types of companies.

By comparison, Jeff Bezos scored an approval rating of 83 percent among employees and Steve Ballmer registered 40 percent among Microsoft employees in the last Glassdoor report.

People who use Glassdoor give feedback about their places of work in exchange for access to the information collected by the site. The approval ratings for CEOs work much like U.S. presidential approval ratings, with employees asked to answer yes or no to the question, “Do you approve of the way your CEO is leading the company?”

Jobs stepped down as Apple’s CEO today but will remain as the company’s chairman.
