do you think that your boss is a jerk

Actually my boss is really cool and I got on very well with my boss at the last company where I worked too. I've only ever had a couple of bosses that I didn't particularly like but as they were the bosses I made an effort to get along with them even though everyone else seemed to hate them too. Sorry to hear you have negative feelings towards your previous bosses too. Maybe you need to change your attitude towards your job / career / employer / boss in general. I am not criticising you but suggesting that you try to feel more positive towards your boss and maybe things at work will be easier for you. Your bosses were probably put in their positions due to their experience (sometimes not always) and qualifications so the company must know what it's doing. If it always feels that you have a problem with your boss wherever you work maybe you need to look at yourself and find out what it is about you that makes you dislike people in positions of authority? I hope you can find out what it is and resolve it or you'll be unhappy at work for a long time. Good luck :)

Hey my previous bosses were there only because they were relatives of someone in the board of directors, my present boss is a well experienced (more than 20 years) man, but he wants to run the company just the old hag way it used to run some 20 years back. so what do you think might be my reason for being frustrated on my boss. and thanks for good luck, same to you

Ok so your previous bosses only were in their positions because of nepotism. You say your current boss has 20 years of experience. SO you don't think he has earned the right to be the boss. I worked as a quality auditor for several years a while back and one of the things I had to convince people of that kept making mistakes was that things had to change to improve. If people were not accepting of the change they had to prove why it wouldn't work. If your boss has been working there for 20 years and things are going well, I can understand why he wants to keep running it the old way, there's a saying "If it aint broke, then don't fix it!" If it's been working for the company all these years why change it? BUT if YOU as a newer employee can honestly say that you know ways things could be better, it's up to you as the younger more dynamic person to convince him that change is necessary. Don't get on the wrong side of him, butter him up, tell him he's done a fantastic job all of these years and that people in the company respect him because he gives people a fair hearing. Then get him to give you a fair hearing :) Use your imagination, get on the right side of him and then try to get the changes implemented as long as you know 100% that those changes are for the good of the company...
