If I had to choose one thing, it’s not responding to emails.
Boss man is REALLY bad about that. And of course, I’m a bit OCD about responding to emails/texts, so it’s a volatile mixture.
I also despise micromanaging, but it doesn’t happen all that often.
According to a recent study, micromanagement is the number one thing employees hate about their boss. The constant control, looking over your shoulder, etc.
The rest of the top 10 are:
2. Never available or don’t respond.
3. They’re incompetent.
4. They’re rude.
5. They’re condescending.
6. They have no empathy.
7. They’re a bad listener.
8. They gossip.
9. They are self-serving.
10. They have a bad temper.
Another common answer was that the boss was “too nice”.
