Manager that worked out of fear of what the VP would think vs. what's right for the customer / business. This boss has since left our company, but the VP remains. This VP is a yes woman, obeys orders from above without question. Both are terrible.

I work for attorneys-I'm a degreed accountant. My boss once said to me he was surprised I even graduated high school and that I don't know thing one about correctly doing bookkeeping. That was until the firms own accountant told him otherwise.

This is the same boss who still doesn't understand why the balance shown in the bank differs from the balance in the books. In other terms he hasn't a clue what an outstanding check is. Uggggh

He would take spreadsheets that I had developed for tracking inventory and standard work documents then circulate them as they were his own to other plants. But eventually got busted because he wasn't clever enough to change the author in settings.

I was sexually harassed and my boss took his side.

No, not horrible. I had one who was a bit problematic but I can't say she was horrible. I had a lab manager who was about 80% horrible. She wasn't the boss, but she held the purse strings, which almost made it worse.

Many. The one I have now likes to say mean things about her employees behind their other employees. It can make for a tense work environment. I avoid het and am happier for it.
