Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka has emerged as one of the highest rated CEOs in an employee's choice survey.

Conducted by Glassdoor, the survey recognises 50 highest-rated CEOs at large companies (1,000 or more employees) judged by the people who work for them in the US.

Google CEO Larry Page has taken the top spot, followed by Nike's Mark G Parker. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is ranked at No 4 while Apple CEO Tim Cook comes in at No 10.

Sikka, ranked 35th, is second among four Indian-origin executives featured by Glassdoor - behind Cognizant CEO Frank D'Souza who is ranked 33rd. Stryker's Kevin Lobo is ranked No 43, while Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen is at No 47.

The Infosys head who joined the company on June 14, 2014, and was elevated to the post of managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) effective August 1, 2014, had a 91 per cent approval of employees.

Sikka took to Twitter to thank his staff after the list was released.

"Wow! Sitting here in our own glass doors late at night, you can only feel humbled to see this. Thx Infoscions! (sic)," Mr Sikka tweeted.


Sikka is the first non-founder head of India's second largest IT outsourcing company.

Over 60 per cent of Infosys' revenues are generated from North America while India contributes a little over 2 per cent, according to the company. Nearly 30 per cent of Infosys' employees are based onsite or outside India.
