Question Do you prefer a male or female as your boss? What gender is your boss?

In our company I see some groups where the manager is a female. I have only once worked for a female boss, back in India.

So would you prefer a female boss? Or a male boss is fine?

What are some of the differences you have seen in the working and managing styles of a female versus a male boss?

females are more sincere,talkative and take more interest in arranging meetings....some unrelated to the work...I don't like these things...
Also,females stay from politics...so that means clean environment for work...I like this...

shouldn't there be one more option. "Don't care at all".

And my option will be - depends on the individual (and for that I need another option).

Red face Re: Do you prefer a male or female as your boss? What gender is your boss?

When I was in India, at one job my boss was female. She used to be quite political with some other managers and always be in the midst of politics. Also she used to just throw around MBA type phrases and jargon. I dont know how she was still a manager when she should have been kicked out because I had seen atleast 3 senior folks quit in protest.


Anyway, in US, I had a female tech lead when I was a contractor in my first contract. She too was a MBA jargon types and technically weak. One good thing was that she realised her technical weakness and would always take me to meetings and turn the discussion over to me when anything technical came up.

I prefer a male boss as I can be very open and direct with him. He is a guy and I know what and how I can say things to a guy. If I say something I know that it will be understood as such. With females I dont know. They might find non existent nuances and different meanings to what I have said.

Offcourse, I would give anything to work for a female boss like Demi Moore!

I prefer a male boss! They are so much more approachable than the female counterparts, generally speaking.

Re: Do you prefer a male or female as your boss? What gender is your boss?

Observation : UMA has selected all the options available. Wonder why ?
I prefer male boss. In my experiences, I have'nt had any issues with male bosses really. They have been technically strong, good control over team & projects. Sometimes, I have felt that I am more comfortable communicating with a male boss.

Have had 1 female boss back in India & I really did'nt understand how she was made Project Leader. Technically weak, no strong hold/control over the members of the team, bad assignment of work to team members.

Current job, female boss. Technically good, overall strong grip over matters, helps when in a spot, but too hot. lol

I observed same.....

So now question is WHO IS UMA....?

Because only MODs or ADMINs can modify the votes. (I know this from being a MOD on other forum.... )


BTW...I'm my own Boss.

My dear Amtha.....thanks for the illuminating post

I suspect that Tantu and UMA are two sides of the same coin
