H-E-B's Charles C. Butt made the list of America's 50 most beloved CEOs.

The chiefs of Facebook, Google, Apple and Texas' beloved H-E-B all made the ranks on job site Glassdoor's list of top-rated CEOs of a large company in the U.S.

Glassdoor determined the 50 rankings by collecting anonymous employee reviews. Beating out well-known names like Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, is Bob Bechek at No. 1. Bechek is the worldwide managing director of Bain & Company, a management consultant firm, and received a 99 percent approval rating from employees surveyed. 

Zuckerberg did make top 10 though, along with LinkedIn's Jeff Weiner, Apple's Tim Cook and Google's Sundar Pichai. A bit further down the list at No. 19 is H-E-B's CEO Charles C. Butt, who received a 95 percent approval rating. 

Satisfied employees gave reviews like "H-E-B has always been hreat with allowing Partners to have a flexible schedule" while negative reviews said the company is "very demanding" and "has you work full-time hours while keeping you on part-time status."
