A majority of job seekers, 67%, say that a diverse workforce is important when evaluating a company or job offer, according to a Glassdoor diversity hiring survey.
Yet, just 33 companies on the Fortune 500 have a woman CEO. That’s an increase from last year’s total of 24, but it signals that corporate America still has a long way to go in its efforts to hire and promote more women.
Looking at the roughly 900,000 employers on its platform, Glassdoor analyzed which CEOs received the best approval ratings from its staff. Out of the 100 CEOs ranked on the U.S., seven women made the cut.
Leading the pack is In-N-Out Burger CEO Lynsi Snyder, who ranked third out of 100 with a 99% approval rating. Following Snyder is Cathy Engelbert with a 97% rating. (Though Engelbert will officially take on a new role as commissioner of the WNBA on July 17, she was still CEO of Deloitte during the time period employee reviews considered for this ranking were submitted.)
These are the women who made Glassdoor’s 2019 list of America’s top 100 CEOs:

Employee review: “Flexible, no minimum hours or maximum hours, great pay, great parents and students!”

61. Tricia Griffith, Progressive Insurance
CEO approval rating: 93%
Employee review: “Flexible work arrangement, access to a lot of resources/technology, work/life balance, nice campuses, good management, a lot of different opportunities/jobs, campuses are located near shops, restaurants and park systems, pay is excellent.”
53. Pamela M. Nicholson, Enterprise Holdings
CEO approval rating: 94%
Employee review: “Everyone who has succeeded in Enterprise Holdings started at the beginning as a management trainee.
