what matters most?

For the employed ones, what matters most? High pay but rotten boss, or rotten pay but great boss? For me, i can only agree with the first one for some time, but the second one, i'd rather work for less if the boss is great!

I want to have a good boss who will pay me good amount. i have to admit that though working fo a good boss is okay... we still need to bring food home at the end of the day. just for how long can we sustain little amount of salary? I guess its an endless discussion cause many will say its not always the money that matters but i guess it does matter too especially if you are a bread winner.

I definitely feel that enjoying your job is of utmost importance. If you have a job you hate but it pays great - the money can only make you happy for so long. But since we have choices - why choose to be miserable every day? I've been lucky in that I find jobs with small companies that appreciate their employees. So they are jobs that I enjoy, AND they pay me well enough to support my family.

I think I'd rather choose rotten pay but great boss. if my boss is rotten, no matter how high my pay is i'd still be unhappy at work and that's not good because it will affect me professionally and personally. i'd rather be happy and have a nice, supporting boss even though my pay is not that high. but of course over time i'd probably look for another job if my pay remains the same for a long time hehe!

I always have high regards for my boss and I always take them as my role models. So in that case, why would I take a rotten person as a model? Though a high salary is quite tempting, how can you work effectively in a rotten environment? Working each day will be a sacrifice to you. When you enjoy your work and your work environment, working is always a pleasure and you will deliver more than what is expected from you. You will have concern for the company and it's owners that you will do your best so that when the company grows, you'll also reap your rewards-higher salaries.
