Top CEOs to Work For in Austin

What makes for a great Chief Executive Officer? The best CEOs are noble public faces for their company’s successes and failures, captains of industry, accessible to all employees within reason, and just as concerned with their workers’ lives as they are with the bottom line. They have to balance shareholder demands while still running their company in an ethical way.

These CEOs in Austin were rated as the best by their own employees on Comparably. This means they are well-regarded for their leadership style and their effectiveness in the role. As a boss, it’s always easy to run afoul of employees’ good will, so these ratings mean quite a lot.

The list that follows is a live leaderboard of the top CEOs in the area based on current employees’ ratings and reviews. Companies are ranked based on their all time ratings and the ranking can change as employees leave new ratings and reviews.
