What Employees Really Think Of Their Bosses

Do you sometimes wonder whether your boss has any clue about what you do at the office each day? Well, it turns out you're not alone. 

A new survey finds that about one in three employees are convinced their managers have no idea about what they do at the office, with 41% confident their boss wouldn’t be able to complete a day’s work in their shoes. What’s more, one third of workers believe their boss is grossly overpaid for their job.

While nobody expects a boss and employee to be best friends, it sounds like bosses could be doing more to at least develop a decent relationship with their workers. A fifth of employees say they wouldn’t describe their boss as understanding or empathetic, with a quarter saying the boss isn’t concerned for their well-being or happiness on the job. What’s more, 17% believe their boss is clueless about their feelings, with a fifth saying they’ve heard their manager say negative things about colleagues.

But not everyone looks poorly on their supervisor. In fact, 30% of employees say they get along with their boss, although only in a professional environment, while a third say they get along both personally and professionally with them.  I love my boss......especially on pay day!
