The world is buzzing about Steve Jobs’ resignation as CEO of Apple and likely will be for weeks. After all, Jobs founded the company decades ago in his garage and has led the tech giant with groundbreaking innovations from the Apple II in the 1980’s to the iPad 2 earlier this year.

But Jobs wasn’t just a tech genius, he was a highly rated CEO (97% approval rating) with thousands of employees who will sincerely miss his outstanding leadership. But what is it that made Jobs a well-liked boss?

Glassdoor turns to those who know best – the employees who work at Apple.
