Do you hate working under women?

As a woman I always find that women with higher posititions always seem to give other women a hard time.....while men get it easier...

I personally would never work under a woman.......

Any ideas?

Yes - at least going by the 3 female supervisors I've worked under so far (actually 4 I'd guess as one of them had a female boss). Then again, I'm open to it assuming they aren't a right pain in the backside.

From the women bosses I've known, they always seemed to be paranoid about loosing their positions. Not sure why at all as they weren't that high up even (just floor supervisor level), but I'd guess in those cases an insecurity might lead to odd behaviour. They'd most likely give women a harder time as they know how to make them feel inferior whereas they don't understand male physiology as well so can't be sure of the right result.

The best bosses I've had have been women. Maybe it's because we are both females and can bond or whatever, but I've never had a problem with taking leadership from women...

It does depend on the women!!! I've talked about this subject so many times and does it change for men? do they treat other men differently in the work place?

I believe everyone is different and you can't tar every brush the same!!!

As for me I am a women boss and I treat everyone the same! most of the time im softer on the women when we have done events than the men because I understand their needs more!!!

I agree with warmhearts - each person is different.

I've worked with female bosses that were great - and others who I would have liked to tell them where to go (in no uncertain terms!).

As with every sex, race, religion - it's what is inside that counts!

In my experience older women are ok, its the younger ones who have just started working in the workplace and have got a low down management job. They seem to think they run the whole company.
Joke with them and they won't keep it up for long. I am only basing this on a few examples, so no hate mail. lol

I have been working with women, they have been nice and less nice as also men with who I have been working with. I don't really see the difference. Scratch

I've had one female boss, and she was evil. But I don't think it was because she was a woman, I think if she'd been a man, she'd have been just as nasty.

My best bosses have been men. They seem to take me under their wing and teach me things. It's like the female boss doesn't want to teach you anything because she's afraid you'll do better than her.

self-employed for too many years to consider being an employee again.

While I may not work under their supervision, some of my best customers are women. Many corporate Marketing Departments are exclusively staffed by women. When doing business with them, I have to meet their requirements.

I'm not under their supervision, but I do accept and follow their directions. Many times I find it easier to work with femaile buyers. Not sure why, but many of them are less demanding and more willing to accept limitations as to what our suppliers can accomplish.

If I didn't do business with female buyers, my sales would drop by nearly half.

Well James, I'm sure the vast amount of successful business women out there should answer your question.

I would work under a woman, if I had to work for someone else again. Also, I have people working under me, and I certainly don't give them a hard time because I'm a woman. Having a good boss would depend on the personality of that person - not what sex they were.

I would rather agree with catherine. No matter what the sex is - everything depends on the personality.
Still I prefer a woman as a boss. All my ex-bosses were male.. And it was too hard to be with them on good terms.(( It is much easier for me to deal with a woman.
