When You Have a Bad Boss

Bad bosses can pay their employees more, but don’t. Get creative with that budget. The amount of fluff that is allowed for various line items but not for employee salaries always blows my mind! Re-negotiate that Sales Force estimate and move some money so that your employees can get paid.

you say you appreciate your employees but by how much you pay your team that is a lie

Next on the list of crappy things bad managers do, using your ideas without giving you credit.

when your boss uses your idea and take full credit for it

Bad bosses don’t trust their employees.

when your boss tells you to behave in front of the big boss

Last on this topic of bad bosses is being a jerk when your employees call in sick. Yes, there are always going to be team members who lie, use and abuse sick time – but you have to trust your employees. And if your employee is sick, let them rest. The last thing you want is a sick employee coming into the office making the rest of the team ill.

bosses be like but you are still coming in to work right?

Unfortunately, bad management often thinks they make for a great boss. Thoughts and prayer to anyone dealing with a manager who is a narcissist.

oh tell me again what a good boss you are

Micromanager Memes

Another sign of a bad boss is micromanagement. I once had a boss who demanded that I CC her on every single email that I sent. This was in addition to weekly logs of everything that I did. Her leadership style was a complete disaster to say the least.

micromanager meme  micromanagement at its finest boss watching

Micromanagement refers to a management style where a boss or supervisor closely monitors and controls the work of their employees.

So, while it’s important to stay on top of things as a manager, it’s also important to give your team the space and autonomy they need to do their best work.
