At work, are you verbally praised by your boss regularly at least once a month?

No way. My boss is a very twisted man who does not hesitate to break the law. The building I work out is been condemned is unsafe and he will not fix anything. He has change things around so someone else will take the fall and go to jail.

Wow, tough situation there. Hope you're not impacted too much by his issues.

No. And it's so frustrating to do a weeks worth of work with no input and get no feedback. At all.

That's a problem that's so common in businesses large and small.

Probably most days. It meant even more coming from coworkers who could actually do the job and weren't afraid of it than it did coming from a supervisor or manager.

Not at all! The only thing we get is criticism, and snide remarks for not following some asinine rule. I often ask myself how she even has anyone working for her at all, and then I remember I have to pay my electric bill somehow.

I literally haven't heard from my boss in over 6 months. I actually thought she was fired. I keep getting a paycheck so I keep going.

I work for myself, so...not really. I'm not big into verbal self-praise.

Yes but its praise for not doing something. Like if a client is in a meeting and says something very stupid and my Boss sees me holding back the urge to beat the client over the head with the phone receiver.

I wouldn't consider once per month "regular", but yes, at least that.

I was thinking about saying weekly. Ultimately, I thought that would lead to completely lopsided results. So I settled on monthly to give both answers a chance.

No if you don't follow me you should and read the post about where I work. Under old management we are praised a lot. Under the new one were not.

Never from my manager, but the vet that owns the practice loves me and always makes a point to tell me when a client pays me a compliment. The animals love me, which makes the owners happy, so it's fairly often.

No I work for myself and tend to be somewhat self loathing. Thanx mom.

I answer no because I am self employed too. I think we should get in front of a mirror and start praising ourselves.
