CORRECTION: Northwestern Mutual CEO John E. Schlifske was originally not included in this report due to a data error. Upon review, Schlifske received a 95% approval rating during the eligibility time frame. He is now included in this report, ranking fourth, as subsequent CEOs on the list decrease one spot in ranking. For clarification, Glassdoor has updated this report to feature 51 CEOs. We regret this error as Glassdoor is committed to the highest level of data integrity.
