Jane Wells, CNBC Reporter and Funny Business Blogger has been reporting all day today on Jane stopped by our offices to do the taping right before Christmas (which also happened to be the day after our holiday party – if people seem a little sluggish that’s because they were!) in the multi-segment series on her blog, check out further details from our CEO ratings report, discussion about the future of Glassdoor and information about bonuses. In addition, she’s gone a little deeper into companies like Dell and Chrysler.

In addition, check out some of the polls CNBC is included at the bottom of the CNBC blogs. For example, CNBC polls readers of the Chrysler blog about their sentiments toward the approval and disapproval ratings of the Big Three Auto manufacturers. As of 3:30 p.m. PT, 106 readers voted:
