I have been working for 5 years and I have experienced working in both male and female bosses and truth to be told, from my teeny weeny experience, I'd say give me male boss any time! Haha..I went to a kursus a few months back and the facilitator asked us to put up our hands to show our preferences for male or female boss. And when she said "who prefer male boss please put up your hand!", and almost automatically most of the hands inside the hall shot up. When it came to female boss turn, only two hands shot up. What do you think?
I am of course a female and God forbids, when in the future I become a boss I evolve into those female boss traits that I so so despised. Female boss are more bossy, I think they have this mentality to prove that they are better than their male counterparts. They are also super strict and sometimes they just want to torture you that you feel like throwing your 3 inch pump shoes at them. I'm sorry if I have offended some people with my view, but I guess my bad experience with female boss have shaped me to be this kind of person..hehe.
And most of my male boss or ex bosses are of easy going kind, and more flexible and easy to talk to. Though not all male bosses are good boss and not all female bosses are bossy boss, I guess the hardest one to find is good boss. Boss who will motivate you and make you a better employee and guide you to be an asset to the organisation. Eh, now I sound like I'm in job interview..hahaha..
Anyway my mum used to tell me that my dad's staff used to be afraid of him because he is a super strict boss (see not all female are strict..haha!) and I told my mum that I think I would really hate it if I were to work under my father supervision (which thanksfully I never did!)! She just laughed back which I secretly thought she must have agreed with me too..kehkeh.
