Craig Jelinek of Costco, Satya Nadella of Microsoft and Bert Bean of Insight Global were among the top 50 CEOs for women, according to a new survey by Comparably, a compensation, culture and career monitoring website.

"We're able to showcase what workplaces are like for women, what companies are best for women, but then we can take it a step further and say what are the CEOs that are rated highest by female employees" said Jason Nazar, CEO of Comparably.

Comparably, when compiling ranked results, looked at how women rated their CEOs, co-workers, managers, professional development and even items specific to meeting interactions.

The lists below represent the best CEOs for women, as rated by their female employees on Comparably.com. Large companies are organizations with more than 500 employees. Small-to-medium companies are organizations with fewer than 500 employees.
