America likes your company, but they’re not thrilled with your CEO.
From the Public Affairs Pulse
“Many think CEOs are paid too much, while regular workers and lower-level managers are paid less than they deserve. And three-quarters (77 percent) feel there is too much power in the hands of a few large companies.”
The news gets better: 61 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of major companies, and 90 percent have a favorable view of small businesses.
The federal government didn’t fare so well, with only 35 percent of Americans holding a favorable view of that institution.
Keeping the government company at the bottom is the news media, of which 54 percent of Americans hold a favorable opinion.
