. Do you like your “boss” or your immediate head at your office?

I guess, some of us can say NO to that, because there are bosses who could really be a slave driver when it comes to work. But as for me, I can truly say I really like and love my boss. She’s even younger than me , but she have what it takes to be a boss. She would just instruct me on what I should do and leave me alone to do it. When I am finished and she finds it good, she would compliment me for it. She always have a happy face. Of course, there are some instructions that were not followed exactly as she had instructed , but she would tell me in a jokingly manner that I have some lapses in it. She inspires me to excel in what I am doing. We always laugh at her and my mistake. We work happily in her office. Do you feel that way too to your boss?

Lucky you. There's not one thing I can say about my boss that I like. Not a thing. And it's driving me crrrazy.

Maybe when you see your boss, you feel like going out of the room, just not to be with her.

Him. And what I hate most is that we need to have discussions everyday. And would you believe we have to ask his permission before we go home?! Are we like kindergarten or something? One time we went home without informing him and he got mad and called each one of us. And so I told him, so would you like us to go back? And it put a little sense to him and said okay never mind. Whatever happened to professional judgment? You leave not just because it's 5. You leave because your work for the day is done!

Sometimes pointless discussions. People here think, is he that slow that he doesn't get the simplest things? Whatever happened to common sense?

In my case I'm reporting to two different bosses both has different, opposite personalities :) Boss 1 (she) - Of course I like her,just like you, my (she) boss have everything what it takes to be a boss. I've worked with her for like 4 years, during that time, I'm directly reporting to her, and I have learned so much from her. Boss 2 (HE) - I definitely don't like him, actually I despised him. He's so arrogant, boastful and he thinks he knows everything. He's so inconsiderate and he only thinks of himself. I couldn't think any positive traits of him.:)

Well, we're lucky to have Boss 1. But your Boss 2 is definitely a big braggart. He doesn't want the opinion of others. He thought that being that experienced in his line of work , no one could contribute new ideas. I guess, he feels that way because he knows that should you learn the intricacies of his job, you have the big chance of replacing him!

We are lucky to have a boss we can get along well. Just imagine if your boss is not to your liking, and having her with you at work for 8 hours ? When the day ended , you would have been too drained already. I

Fortunately for me, I have a boss who treats me as a friend outside of the office. We live normal office lives - agree, disagree, meet in the middle, or argue to our heart's content. She's very meticulous and workaholic so that pushes me as well to meet her expectations. I feel lucky to have a boss like her.

I like my boss at my previous job. He always inspires and encourages us to try out new things and to do better in our job. He asks us to do some things that we are afraid to try of but in the we realize that it is for our benefit that he is asking us to do that. We always go out together with my team members, eat together, talk, laugh and we have a lot of fun together. We respect our boss at our job because he earned it not only because he is our boss but he is someone worthy of our respect - our leader.

Dear friend, My boss is too young but not younger than me. We are like friends, we discuss many things on job and out of job. Moreover we are neighbors too. I had never seen such a nice boss. Apart from that we are nice friends too.

I actually like my boos. I love the place where I work at. The people are great, the atmosphere is friendly. My workplace almost seem like a family. The people working are also very diverse. I have a co-worker who is three years younger than me and I have a co-worker who is 20 years older than me. I like my boos even though he is strict. I think I work better in an environment where people are pushed to be the best they can be. I seen to just slack off when i have a boss who is very lenient.

No. I'm not alone no one really likes her. She is very rigid and only sees things in black and white. She's not really a good manager and likes to fire people every couple of months.

Oh that was a cruel boss. Maybe, everybody feels fidgety whenever she's around. It's not a healthy office environment. I wonder how you survive being with such a boss?

I am working for a very good reputed company, and the people are very friendly, cooperative, cordial, and understanding. The boss of the Department I am working in is also a very qualified person, leading the people and the projects very professionally. We all like him and respect him.

That's nice to hear. With that kind of boss, you will always be enthusiastic in coming to the office to work.
