Apple, Facebook, Google and the rest of Silicon Valley may be under pressure from consumers and lawmakers, but tech employees apparently see a different side of chief executives. Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg landed on Glassdoor’s 2019 list of the top CEOs in the US. They’re the only two executives to have made the list every year.

Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual Employee Choice Awards list on Tuesday along with its lists of the top 100 CEOs.

In total, 27 CEOs from the tech industry made this year’s list. Cook moved higher on the list from No. 96 to No. 69, and Zuckerberg fell from the No. 16 spot in 2018 to No. 55 this year.  Microsoft’s Satya Nadella and Google’s Sundar Pichai also landed on the list, at No. 6 and No. 46, respectively. Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware (No. 78 in 2018) ousted Eric Yuan, Zoom Video Communications CEO from the No. 1 spot.

Glassdoor’s list honors 100 CEOs across the US, Canada, the UK, France and Germany, according to a release. To qualify for the list, current CEOs must receive at least 100 CEO approval ratings and 100 senior management ratings between May 2, 2018, and May 1, 2019.
