    Very much! She’s the only female director in our company and I admire her for having to put up with all of the sexist bullshit that she deals with.

    Considering my mom is my “primary” boss, over myself and an in house client, I like her MOST days…. as long as I remember that during that time she’s “boss” and not “mom”.

    I like my boss a lot! He is always in a good mood, fair and cares about every single employee. He is really easy to talk to as well. It is a small company so he is always doing things for us to say thank you. Examples from this year: early releases, taking us out for drinks on Red Sox Opening Day to watch the game, $50 gas card, random half days, and a company dinner/entertainment night is coming up.

    I LOVE my boss, we are actually friends.  I had him at my wedding (only 1 of 2 ppl from work).  I hang out with his wife, and dolunch and coffee runs ALL the time.  I feel pretty lucky.

    My Boss has her days. She can be very nice and sweet and then some days she’s stricted and mean. I guess it goes with the job, she’s the manager and get’s alot of tough stuff coming from higher up. But most of the time she’s pretty good 🙂

    Very much. She is awesome. We get a long very well and occasionally do game night with our husbands but most of the time we leave them behind and go shop or to lunch or somehting.

    My boss is an Indian male so he comes with certain cultural norms that I was otherwise unfamiliar with. Once I came to understand how he approaches things I started to appreciate his overall management style. He is very understanding and caring, although to some he might seem otherwise.

    I like my boss, but hardly ever see any of my supervisors.  The person I see most is my mentor, who is sort of also my boss, and she and I get along incredibly well.

    Yes! She is awesome!! Very understanding, supportive, and she understands what it takes to do the job & appreciates us as employees. Also it doesn’t hurt that we are in different cities so no mircomanaging!

    I have more than one, and my duties are changing at the job.  Of course  it depends on the workload and day too.

    For the most part I like my bosses…the ones above them I have to deal with often too, not so much.

    He drives me crazy sometimes because he’s a scatterbrain, and because sometimes he expects me to know things I couldn’t possibly know.  But he never gets angry or anything, and he’s so laid-back and even-keeled, it’s really almost impossible to dislike him for more than five minutes.

    Yeah, I like my boss. We both started a cohort to get our MBA together and have gotten closer. Its nice to have a “personal” relationship with my boss.
