Employees reveal their most badly behaved bosses

The role of a company boss comes with a wealth of responsibility. Bosses must effectively lead teams, supervise employee progression and achieve set  goals to keep the business cogs turning. Good managers are able to strike a healthy balance between inspiring and empowering employees to perform at their best and achieve set goals aligned with the company’s overarching vision.

    A few bosses spring to mind. One boss called me into his office and just sat glaring at me for what seemed like ages, but during this time the phone kept ringing, he finally grabbed the phone ripped it out of its socket and threw it across the room at me. At the point I dodge the phone I had decided it was probably time to start looking for a new job.
