June 19, 2019

It’s a five-peat: The Un-CEO once again earns recognition as one of America’s most-admired business leaders

Today, Glassdoor named T-Mobile CEO John Legere one of best of the best CEOs in the nation. As part of the 2019 Employees’ Choice Awards, Glassdoor’s Top CEO rankings once again included Legere, who earned the number one spot for wireless CEO for the fifth year in a row AND the number four spot in America! He also claimed the highest spot for Seattle and the State of Washington, home to T-Mobile HQ. The rankings are based on voluntary company reviews that T-Mobile employees post on Glassdoor. Through their comments specifically referencing CEO leadership, employees gave Legere an astounding 99 percent approval rating compared to an average CEO approval rating of 69 percent.

“I’m so motivated by how hard Team Magenta works to take care of customers and make T-Mobile an amazing company – they inspire me to try to be a better CEO every single day!” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere. “I love seeing all the feedback from our employees in forums like Glassdoor. It keeps me tuned into what’s working and where we can improve!”

CEO approval ratings are gathered through Glassdoor’s online company review survey, which assesses current and former employee sentiment about job and company satisfaction, work environment and culture. Employees submit reviews and rate various factors, including overall satisfaction with senior management and whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about their CEO’s job performance.

Anonymous T-Mobile employee comments from the survey speak volumes. “Our CEO has major love for his customers and loves his employees even more,” wrote a sales representative from McKinney, Texas. And one support manager wrote, “Our CEO is the real deal. He holds employees in high regard and invests a lot of his time and energy in ensuring they know. He’s innovative and engaging (and very entertaining), and his senior leadership echoes those qualities.”

That was just one of more than 60 local and national Best Place to Work awards earned by T-Mobile in 2018 alone. See the complete list of Glassdoor’s Top CEOs of 2019 here.
