Bosses! Can't work with them, can't work without them. Everything seems to be fine when you join the job but if you are one of those fortunate ones, sooner or later your boss starts smirking in your nightmares.

A chat with employees working under tough projects and small teams who usually face tremendous work pressure will give us interesting insights about the bad bosses they have. Even in a company sans work pressure employees regularly bump into bad bosses. And their experiences are real bad [pardon me of your boss is really good] which they only share once they are in a new job. Good bosses are hard to find and employees hate their bad bosses for very many reasons. So, what are those reasons that employees hate their boss like anything??

Incompetent and unacknowledging

idea posted by Dipika Das Associate/Sr. Associate -(NonTechnical), ABC Consultants Private Limited

Employees hate bosses who doesn't have the essential competitive skills but still scorns the work they do. Whether or not the boss is competitive, the employee really longs for his good work to be acknowledged and not to be treated as a 'piece of crap'.

Acknowledgement and good feedbacks are a lot more essential in any job...a boss lagging in these aspects will surely make him being hated by his employees...

yes dipika when a employee see that his boss is not competent and getting more than him and he is better in quallification and working criteria this happens normally. A good boss also knows that which work can be done by which tam member perfectly. from my point of view a Manager means managings the employees with their competency level. thanks for a good topic

Lack of Respect

idea posted by Sharad Gupta Software Developer, CG Mumbai

Employees need respect. One of greatest complaints that nearly every employee has about their boss is a perceived lack of respect. Most employees feel their bosses don't respect their privacy, their ability, and their personal lives (yes, employees have a life outside of work). As such, employers should go out of their way to show respect to each employee in the organization. Remember that respect tends to be reciprocated; as such, showing respect to employees is one of the most effective ways to win their respect and loyalty.

Yes, respect should be a two way traffic. I support your idea, Sharad. Thanks for referral, Rohit.

Due to communication gap, wrong appraisal methodology

idea posted by Kaushik Ghosh CM

Only a few employees can express their idea properly to the higher peer. It results in an unacknowledged response for some intelligent thoughs and very often suitable plans are not materialized. Boss and the subordinate, both may be responsible in this regard.

In some companies/ firms, the merit and performance appraisal methods are either unscientific or not implemented properly. That too creates discouragement for employees. In spite of blaming the system, employees generally blame their boss.

ATTITUDE OF BOSS

idea posted by s.baalu Consultant, XYZ LTD

Basically if you look at it it is the attitude of the Boss who invariably forgets the fact that he is also an employee in the same organisation like others.Bosses normally feel that they have come down from heaven and his subordinates are all from hell,from a very low level in every aspect and looks at his juniors as his slaves.Such high handed attitude which originates in him because of his low level of maturity,earns the displeasure of his juniors which ultimately ruins the working atmosphere.

LACK OF UNDERSTANDING

idea posted by priya recuriting and counselling, professional training consultancy

FIRST OFF ALL THE EMPLOYES WANT TO TALK WITH THE BOSS FRANKLY.THE BOSS AND EMPLOYESS SHOULD CHAT TOGETHER DURING THE PROJECT SHARE ALL THE IDEAS AND THEN TAKE THE FINELLY DECISION.

IF THE EMPLOYEES CHAT FREELY,JOELLY WITH THE BOSS MEANS THEN NO ONE WHILE HATE THE BOSS.

IF OTHER EMPLOYEES MAKE ANY PROBLEM OR IN PROJECT ITSELF U HVE ANY DOUBT OR U WANT TO SHARE UR OPINION LET THEM SHARE UR BOSS AND FINISHED IT OFF THE PROBLEM ON THAT SECOND ITSELF..........UDERSTAND UR BOSS AND UR BOSS ALSO ILL UNDERSTAND U VERY WELL .........THEN THE PROBLEM WNT ARISE ,U WONT HATE UR BOSS ALSO.............

My boss

idea posted by sameer kamble IT Manager, indsoft systems

dipika,

 

In our consulting practice we mostly heard negative stories from people about their bosses.

but its not true.


My boss supports me in many ways - from helping me get overtime to cover some technical work, to getting time off to attend family functions. I appreciate his efforts to help me - he's always pulled through for me.
He always lets me know when I've done a good job. When he's upset about something, he doesn't take it out on everyone in the office."

No one wants to work

idea posted by Joydeep Dasgupta Business Development, New Horizon

 

The boss is also an employee even if he is the owner, he wants his subordinate to do it, and subordinate is mostly not interested, if it’s a small shop he has to slog or he may be shown the door (insecurity), the fear of losing job creates hate for the boss, in larger ones its peer pressure (office politics) and the fear of losing the job. For MNC job hopping is the way of life (IT programming tech support for higher sal.) the boss is scared of attrition so does all type of monkey activities, he is hated (cal centres) as his KRA is hit.

US population is little less than 320 million, we having more than three times the population our per capita income is little over $ 1000 USD, Rs 40000 INR a year. We don’t have a goal as we don’t have identity. Who are we?

Ego, Partiality, Unsupportive & Inhuman Attitude

idea posted by PS Dhingra CEO & Vigilance & Transformation Management Consultant, Dhingra Group of Management & Educational Consultants

Ego, Partiality, Unsupportive & Inhuman Attitude are the prime reasons that employees start hating their boss, as are discussed below:

Most of the bosses become egoistic and the employee is not able to access his/her boss to solve his/her work related problems, but gets rebuked when not able to accomplish the job in time due to such problems.

Partiality of boss favoring one and neglecting other employees is another reason for hating of the boss by the employees.

Unsupportive attitude of the boss even when the employee is right, or have done a commendable job, or made an achievement, is another reason that employee starts hating his boss.

Inhuman Attitude of boss towards an employee by not understanding his emotions, personal needs or providing timely help expected from him, is another reason making the employees hate his boss.

Earlier background of employees does matter a lot where in they are unaware of organizational hierarchy and work culture. Its practical that few who get money,power or influence at once are not really able to digest the same.
