How are you doing with your boss?

well my first boss was scary but she's my second best boss. one thing i admire about her is that as long as you do what she tells you to do, you will be okay, i had no problems filing for overtime with her. my second boss is so lazy he doesn't deserve to be the boss. the boss who replaced him is better. my third boss is the best. he is strict but he will not insult or put you to shame in front of others, he encourages us to perform well. my fourth boss is the second worse boss i had. the last straw that made me quit was when i found out she made up some story and tried to make my friend lose trust in me, luckily my friend confronted me and i told her the boss' story is not true. we bought resigned from that company. only to get a far worst boss than she is. my boss right now is such a liar, he does not remit our social security contributions and makes us do adhoc tasks then criticize it (say its bad, he can make a better one), says he terminated people but those people resigned, says he filed a case against them when in fact those people filed a case against him. hopefully my next boss will be the best boss

I think having a good boss is quite important for one's career. My first boss was absolutely horrible. She was a woman about 55 years old. Once I read an article about what kind of boss that you can't follow up. I could find out almost all of the points from my former boss. She didn't respect us. She always said: you know nothing, you have nothing done right. And she could scold us just in the presence of our clients. She kept control on every detail things, even how to document the files. She didn't give us any decision power. She didn't dare to make decisions by herself, she scared to take resiponsiblity for her decision. She went back her words, and never keep her promise. Ah, I can't stop when I get my thought back to that period. I thought I nearly have had mental subnormality at that time. Not only do I think so, all our colleagues have the same opinion. So finally, our colleagues all resigned.

I got on well with my bosses pretty well, at least in terms of work. I learned a lot from them in knowledge, either technical or commercial, and the way of managing team or department or even a company. Some are more capable in profession, some better in leadership. There are also some who were learning, and need imput of background and mentoring of skills. As subordinate, I kept reminding myself providing best support and assistance, ignoring their personal ups and downs. If the boss is competent, I am lucky, If not, I have to live up with it and get the mission fulfilled. We need to develop the gift of humor and the skill of balance to live an easier life.

I am not having a good relationship with my boss. What I do is I just go and work and leave office. I think my boss has lots of ego problems and she wants to be at the top and everyone to behave in an inferior way and consider her as superior. Because there is no option, I just ignore lots of things I don't like and just hear things she says in one ear and throw it out through another ear.
