I was listening to Jack Welch's- Welch Way podcast and he answered a question on What is better situation at work: a Good boss in an Average company or Bad boss in a great company. Jack Recommends the latter and suggests sooner or later the bad boss is found and Ousted.
I had always been fortunate to work with great bosses over a period 22 years and in great organizations.Yes, about a decade back, the change of job was for a bad boss in a great company whom I couldn't live along even for 5 months as I felt that by the time company finds out (Since he was newly recruited as a last minute fit, with hobson's choice). I would be long dead. Of course, at that time there was no manager tools or other communication aids to consult or counsel.
I had chosen companies to work for the positive vibes and relations I had established with the hiring manager right from the interview process and it had sustained through out the job . Even when I changed jobs, the relations with the managers were maintained.
Just wondering what are the forum thoughts??.
