With a 91 percent employee approval rating, eBay Inc. CEO John Donahoe earned the No. 19 spot on Glassdoor’s ranking of 50 Highest Rated CEOs for 2014. Glassdoor, a jobs and career site, based its report – the first time it has ranked CEOs in the United States – on anonymous and voluntary reviews by eBay Inc. employees in the past year.

Glassdoor gathers CEO approval ratings through its online company review survey, which also asks employees to rate a number of factors related to their jobs and their company, including job satisfaction, compensation and benefits, and work-life balance.

Large U.S. employers (defined as having 1,000 or more employees) had to receive at least 100 CEO approval ratings between Feb. 1, 2013, and Jan. 31, 2014.

“To be honored and receive endorsement from your employees for your strong leadership ability is no small task. It requires a steady commitment to define, express and constantly reiterate the company mission and set a clear picture of long-term success,” said Glassdoor CEO & Co-founder Robert Hohman.
