Great bosses and terrible bosses.

It's always a possibility when you get a job that you might get the best boss ever..or..the worst one imaginable. It's easy to deal with and work hard for a great boss..but how have you handled the really terrible ones?

Excellent Question Pamela Lofland ! My first thought or pause in answering your question is this ‘depends’.

First let me explain my take on Management. Management and/or Leadership is a term commonly used and abused but it’s true meaning has been lost. Internally, for example, workers are promoted to management roles because they have a proven track record that shows they have great capacity to perform the tasks associated to their jobs.

Other good traits and behaviors like attendance, positive attitude, teamwork, and strong communication are also taken into consideration BUT, in reality, those say nothing about that persons ability to see things before they happen, plan, and most importantly develop another employees potential and inspire individual team members to be their Best!

Lets face it, work isn’t supposed to be solely about earning a paycheck! Our work experience should also be about learning, growing, advancement and reaching our goals. In battle, under fire, which is in my opinion a series of highly stressful circumstances a human being can experience.

Your first shot, is it directed towards your Platoon leader or the enemy? Bad managers, in my work experience, just need to get out of the way in order to allow me to grow and advance in the career direction I desire.

I try not to take bad management or leadership personally. It’s illogical and unreasonable to blame someone for being something they’re not or still haven’t learned. I look for other good leaders within the organization and try to establish somewhat of a mentor relationship or someone I can turn to if I have questions, concerns or need advise.

The Manger role has also undergone some drastic changes over the years as well. Today, 100% of a managers time full of tasks leaving them with no time for actual employee management. Managers don’t receive the corporate training they used get in the past. They too need cultivation in their roles!

So, to recap. How do I deal with bad management?

  • Associate myself with other more effective leaders in the organization
  • Refrain from personal opinion and/or judgement
  • Seek out other opportunities within the organization
  • Stay optimistic! Bad managers usually work themselves out of their positions

Thanks for proposing this question and concern to our community @Pamela . Let’s see what other Jobcasers have to say about this matter. Be Well!

Made me strive to go back to school and further my education i could not work for people like that ever again they are the most rude nasty fowled mouth employers i have ever worked for they treat their employees like crap not to mention how they talk about their customers. They also like to falsly accuse their employees of stealing after they fire them.

Worst Place to work, avoid Surya

The owner is very rude, on a daily basis, he would belittle you, and say you can be replaced multiple times a day. He also micro manages everything and everyone. Forget about asking for day off, because it will never happens, as you are required to work 50 hrs a week, please be on call at least once a month. If I was you, I would avoid this company at all cost. You are wasting your time, unless you like being told on a daily basis you can be replaced, having the owner yell at you for anything you do.

Food service- wasnt for me. I was actually forced to quit because i was ill and the general manager thought i was lying. It was very unfortunate that i worked there while that certain manager was there. But on the bright side, that general manager was fired 3 days after he forced me to resign.

My advice to people interested in working at #DoctorsInnSportsMedicineFamilyPractice ...

Do not work there there's mold and mildew inside the building and outside. The water from the faucet is contaminated you have to drink out of a filtering water pitcher. The Ceo will scream at you in front of the staff and patients. They will mess up your pay check. It's very unorganized. They're still using Medware and paper charts. They will loose patients charts and records. They use out of date equipment. The main doctor left the practice and abandoned her patients due to stress from the Ceo. The Ceo will burn you out. The old retired doctor lives above the doctor's office; and he comes in with alcohol and liquor in a huge cup. It's full of drama and chaos. The Ceo will over wOrkney you. You will get fired on your day off. The Doctor who is now at the practice is very stressed out because of the Ceo. She will make you do things out of the scope of your practice because she's always dropping the ball on her part. The patients fell miserable because of the Ceo. She has no respect for the staff or patients. Sorry about this but it's all true. Anything you say to her in confidential she will tell other staff members. I can go on and on. I quit because of job related stress.

If u left the company u should've obtained any supporting evidence ( pictures etc...) became mold is highly cancerous. If I were u I would report the company to the health dept quickly! Plus I might even have medical checkups ever so often to detect any type of cancer! U might have a serious lawsuit!

Accident at #PizzaLounge

I worked at Pizza Lounge in dallas texas. It was a good place to work at. But when the manager was their it was bad. The manager got mad for no reason and he would call you bad names. He would make you feel bad. Thats why i left and thats why all the people that work their leave too. Because of how the manager treats you like animals.

Former employee

The owner Dave McCarty sucks. There's no advancement there are no raises. Doesn't have loyalty for his employees. Ask Tina and Danny about that.

Sorry to hear that, Nikolos. Would you be interested in writing an anonymous review on the company page here on Jobcase so other people can see it if they are looking at the company? To do this, just click the JOBS & COMPANIES tap at the top of the page, then click the COMPANIES button. You can then search for the company and location to find the one you worked at. Click their name and then click the REVIEW button on the new page.

Let me know if you have any questions!
