    I've heard that women prefer male bosses because with female ones the cattiness never ends. Now is this true? Any she-devil stories?

    My immediate superior is a lady.

    She may be a bit inconsiderate at times but in no way a bad boss.

    Heh, I've no real preference. The last two places I've worked I had female bosses. One was a *****, the other was and still is someone I consider to be an extremely close friend, who's only ever supported me and wished me well.

    No preference. The worse bosses I've had have been male actually.

    I'm a guy but I don't think I could ever work under a woman again after my past couple of experiences where I although not myself being under a woman, have seen the way the female bosses treat people that are.

    It all seems to be some strange female version of **** swinging which is a million times more hostile than males

    As an "older" student, I have worked under a number of bosses, and I would rather a male than female anyday. I have had a number of female bosses, who have either been useless and ineffective, always off ill or, in one instance, down right nasty. Just my experience though...

    I don't have a problem with either. I've nearly exclusively had female bosses and none was ever catty. One was pretty racist though but somehow I don't think that had anything to DL with her gender!

    Not just your case, look at the thread or other studies. Very few female bosses are liked by employees, either men or women. And women hate them even more. They let their personal feelings get in the way, they are ineffective or they act hyper-masculine to compensate for something. Most likely all 3 in many cases.

    Just wanted to cover myself! My sister in law is a manager and by all accounts very nice, so I am sure there are nice ones out there...somewhere...but of the 6 women bosses I have had in the last 20 years... all have been pretty much pants.

    I've had pretty much 50/50 male and female managers, all the male managers have been great, easy to get along with, organised and work on the principle that if they help you out you'll help them out in return... all the female managers are *****y, incompetent and just try and bully everyone into doing what they want then if they get called out come up with some sob story excuse
