When Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple yesterday, it’s fair to say he was doing a decent job. The company makes some of the most sought-after devices in the industry, and is sitting on one of the largest piles of cash imaginable.

A survey of about 1,000 Apple employees now claims that Jobs’ co-workers was also impressed with the Jobs era, with a staggering 97% of those questioned saying that they believe Jobs was doing a good job…

Ratings site Glassdoor put the report together, with Apple sitting alongside other tech companies such as Amazon and Microsoft.

Amazon’s staff seem happy with Jeff Bezos, too, with 84% voicing a positive opinion. Not such good news in Redmond though, with Steve Balmer’s leadership coming under question – just 46% of the Microsoft staff feeling he was taking the software giant in the right direction.

Jobs’ numbers will take some living up to, and that’s exactly what new CEO Tim Cook will be hoping to do from now on.
