Dean Foods' Scozzafava tops June's ten-worst-rated CEOs

4 months ago by Joshua Fruhlinger

Glassdoor publishes a popular "Top CEOs: Employees' Choice" award every year. Companies whose CEOs top the list bandy the results about like a PR feather in their caps, and rightly so: Glassdoor CEO ratings are based on the opinions of company employees rather than Wall Street perceptions. That means those CEOs create a culture of success, happiness, and growth.

But on the other end of the rating spectrum are those CEOs who aren't so loved by their employees. We took a look at the lowest 10 for the month of June in order to see which companies appear to be having some internal strife, at least at the top.

The table above represents the CEOs who have received the lowest employee ratings over the past month. We only looked at companies with at least 100 ratings in order to statistically pad any small or new companies that haven't had a significant number of reviews to make the data useful. We also include the CEO's lowest and highest rating of the month in order to understand any movement in rating throughout the month.

June's winner: Ralph P. Scozzafava, Dean Foods

Scozzafava joined Dean foods in 2014 as the company's Chief Commercial Officer. He's well known for his executive positions at Campbell Soup Company and Furniture Brands International. At Dean Foods, the "largest fluid milk company in the United States", Scozzafava has a 6% approval rating. Complaints range from long hours, to poor work/life balance, to heavy turnover. Reviews point to unfair and difficult upper management at the company.
