I don't work under women, but I do work for them. I'm self-employed which means I work for everyone of my customers. Many of whom are women. If I don't earn their business every time, they are free to take their business elsewhere. Of course the same applies to my male customers as well.

I have no problem working with my female customers at all, and have received far more grief and headaches from men.

Since I am self-employed, I have the ability to choose who I work with, and also who I fire as a customer. I can't recall having ever fired one of the women, but can recalll firing at least a couple of the guys.

I've worked in sales for a while and had a couple of female managers and colleagues. I have found that the ones who drive sports cars (typically in a Boxster or a TT) are the ones to watch as they seem to want to be perceived and hard faced business people. Almost trying to be over aggressive as if they have something to prove! (a bit like that girl who lost the apprentice!)

To be frank,I really don't like to talk about business with woman, although i am also a woman. It always seems that it is hard to get along with them, let alone making deals.

I worked with excellent females and not so good, same can be said of the male bosses (in my oppinion).

I used a recent profiling tool and regardless of gender it beacme clear that working with and for others is impacted by my motivation, what makes me tick and how I communicate this to others in my words and actions and in turn others. The really interest stiff was what sends me into conflict and how I react when in conflict...Enlightening stuff.

Over the year I have learned being a female working for a female I don't expect them to automatically know where I'm coming from...not sure my mum does either Exclamation

My department manager is a kindly woman and give me so much trust,she is a niece of my boss,well educated and beautiful. I would like to work under she.
But some middle-aged women in our company also be difficult to come along with, so I think it is all depend on the woman leader.
So ,I am a luck dog.

I prefer working under a male but saying that it's probably because i tend to wynd them round my finger.

Women depending on personality are ok too - as i have a perfectionist attitude to work, whether it is for myself or someone else. I take pride in my work but don't suffer fools gladly.

i've worked for women who have been self obsessed with their positions, others who have said that i think too much and its not my place to think, another who was just plain rude - so far no good experience of working with women and i am a woman.

It really depends upon the person, I can't judge just by gender.

So true ... I have worked for women and men ... i can't say what gender is better to work for as its the person that counts.

Yeah, I've worked for and with the whole range so I can't predict on gender. I don't mind working under a woman at all - I'm not sexist like that at all. In fact, I would hope she is attractive, heh heh.

I wouldn't!

Not because I'm sexist - I wouldn't work under a man either. I just prefer the self-employment route. Smile

Yet we agree again, Paul. Eventually you will come over to the dark side and join me in full force.

Where's the difference? A woman is just as capable as a man when it comes to running a large department in a bigger business. In my experience when it came to marketing in large retail groups such as the supermarkets there were at least as many women as men in the hot seat and they didn't lack anything in professionalism or expertise.

Anyone who finds working under a woman as being undesirable in principle, or indeed the other way round for that matter, is seriously out of touch in today's business world.
