Satya Nadella for the employees of Microsoft is considered a CEO better than its predecessor Steve Ballmer . Second, in fact, a study by UBS which used data collected by Glassdoor, the current CEO of Redmond is particularly appreciated and popular enough to be able to reach, at the end of 2015, a approval rate 88% . Steve Ballmer, in 2013, before his retirement, had not exceeded 51%.

This is an important result that rewards the new policy of Satya Nadella although in recent times has had to make tough decisions such as restructuring of the mobile division that led to the dismissal of many employees. The data highlighted by UBS is even more important if one considers that for the first time in a long time is also higher than that clocked by Apple.

Therefore, for employees, not just Satya Nadella is a great captain of company but also the company itself is, today, a great place to work.

After some dark years, Microsoft has focused more on cloud and on services getting great results. Consider, for example, the success of Azure the Office 365 and Windows 10 .

Satya Nadella has, therefore, turned Microsoft into a company more innovative and modern and this mutation is enjoyed to employees today look more favorably on the leadership and society itself.
