    As far as my “career” type jobs go, I really don’t have a preference working with men or with women.  I guess I’ve been lucky in that we are all mature, respectful, and actually kind of fun to be around.

    yeah I prefer working with men,they arent as affected by office politics as women are. I have found working with women (especially retail) can be much more emotionally draining lol!

    However,Im training to be a hairdresser,which has a much higher ratio of women to men in a working environment, so Im probably shooting myself in the foot *sigh* Wink But so far,at college 99% of the time we have all been really supportive of each other

    I like working with women, as I find that in all male environments, it becomes a boys club and the men start to make inappropriate comments/looks. perhaps the best is just a mixed/co-ed environmment.

    I work part time as a cashier while I go to school and I’m pretty much working with women only haha. I’ve gotten so used to it I don’t mind. A lot of the guys at my work say creepy inappropriate things anyways so I try to avoid them 😉

    I answered men… haha  Actually either is fine, there’s certainly good and bad of both, but I find women gossip a lot and social matters tend to get in the way of work.  I mostly have worked in elementary schools, so maybe I’m just biased.  Women can be pretty catty to each other.

    Men.  Darling Husband works with all women and gets so frustrated.  He says, at least with guys if you have a problem you say “hey man, you’re an ass” and then you get over it.  Women backstab all the time.

    I will always prefer to work with men.

    I seem to be in the minority, but it doesn’t really matter to me.

    this poll is sad, as thats why women are continually discriminated against in the workforce (ie that glass celing/ lower incomes/ less prestige jobs), if we hold this opinion of ourselves, why on earth should other people not hold this opinion?

    Men, depending if they are above you or your co-horts. I prefer as cohorts.

    I get along with most any woman , but they do tend to come with lots of drama 😉

    I usually only get along with one or two women and the rest end up getting on my dang nerves! I cant imagine working with only men and in what world I would be more comfortable with that.

    So I guess I have to say either. To be honest, I think I have always only worked with mainly women.
