    Looking over the years, the men were easier to work with and for, easier to reach compromises with, and easier to understand.  Women don't always say what they mean, whereas men don't even have the ability, in the workplace, to double talk very well.  Women tended to be more suspicious that I was "out to get my job" - possibly because I entered a job full-steam ahead, eager to learn quickly and be independent in my responsibilities rather than babysat, with someone hovering over me constantly.


    Men were more likely to give me an assignment and let me ask questions to clarify as I went along.  A little respect or acknowledgement that I am capable goes a long way in establishing a good work relationship.  Women have trouble relinquishing control, for a variety of reasons.

    Bob your answer prompted me to think about some of my jobs. i like the michael jackson song, 'man in the mirror'. i have been pretty much out spoken most of my adult life, and taught to stand up for what is right, from my dad, who was a very ethical and good man. that caused me a few problems. i could have said nothing. & here's my mom saying take up for people and do the right thing, don't worry about money. speak against evil, and i have. therefore i encountered some problems from some women and some men. many women have helped me in my career, and a few men. but i still think i prefer men bosses for some of the reasons you expressed.

    I would give you another TU if i could Bob,it has been a coupla years now since i was sacked,the anger is still there,just not as bad as it was..>>>>>>><<<<<<<..

    The best ones are the ones who have managerial skills and training. Some of each gender have these qualities and some don't. The ones who don't, just seem to cause daily chaos in the workplace. I've had both female and male bosses.

    With me, males, but I'm not so sure that my male co-workers felt the same.

    I definitely prefer working with men. Sadly, women don't seem to like each other very much, at least in the work place. :(

    I've had both. Men and woman. Good and bad.  I prefer a person that i admire and look up to. For me that means they have great skills, are fair, good leaders, good communicators.  If i had to pick i think i prefer men. however i tended to have more communications with women.


     

    Neither I'm afraid.Like Lindy,I prefer to be the boss.

    If you got the money to set up your own business, that's great !!! Wish I could have done that too.

    I prefer to BE the boss. I was a band leader for twenty years and only ever had to fire two guitarists for being so loaded onstage that they could not stand!  LOL  Otherwise, I guess I prefer ME as boss.   ;D

    tabber... do you mean it was a man I fired? Yes, in one case and a woman in the other! [Alcohol holds no prejudice!]

    Definitely men bosses. Woman are too piceyusnish  (sp)   Women bosses will talk to you like they think you're one of their kids. They've chided me for something trivial . One woman boss yelled at me for putting her mom into her voice mail.But, that's why her mom TOLD  me to do !

    Hey MCM, i was sacked by women bosses,one of the reasons for the sacking,i did not stop operating my fork lift as soon as she said so,i had continued doing what i was doing to put the forklift and load in a safe position,the idiot woman had never driven a forklift,after 17 years,that was one of 3 charges that had me sacked from coles,and during that year,the top 4 bosses had become women,,bit of a girls club i guess...........
    tabber
