I've had bosses who sucked, bosses who were, and everyhting in between. Gender is irrelevant in my experience.

It doesn't matter as long as the manager is a nice, honest and qualified person.
But if there are two equally competent candidates, I prefer a woman.

No preference.

Well I'm a Man so I can take advantage and get paid more for it.

Their gender makes no difference. I have had really bad men AND women bosses. I'd ideally like a very casual, but fair-minded, gay man for a boss, I suppose, but the whole thing depends on their individual personalities. Do they pick on certain employees more than others? Do they have dogy days when they snap at everyone, and other days they are okay? And so on. In fact I'm always surprised when I actually get someone that treats employees like people instead of slaves, and that you can actually talk to without he/she acting like a bullying parent or something.

I've had both. Based on past experiences I would rather have a male boss who is a jerk 100% of the time, than a female boss who is pleasant 75% and psyco beast from hell 25% of the time.

I guess it depends on what the job is....But I would rather have a woman....I find it easier to talk to women than men...Of course they may not understand me because they are a woman...but I can sure try!!

I prefer a woman. Almost every man boss I've had have been jerks.

I don't have a preference. I would rather have a good boss.

I don't care either way. I've had good & bad bosses of either gender.

I like male bosses. I have never liked having a woman for a boss....sometimes I have trouble with other women....I don't know why.

I don't know, they both have good parts and bad parts about them.

It doesn't matter to me.

I have only had women for bosses, so I can't say. It depends on their personality, not sex.
posted 14-Mar-2006 8:17pm  
I don't really care about my boss's gender, as long as she/he is compassionate, believes in what she/he does and is a good leader.

I don't know. I don't work outside the home.

As long as they're a good boss, I couldn't care less.

It depends more on their level of professionalism than their gender. Sadly, the two most horrible bosses I've had were women.
posted 20-Mar-2006 6:56pm  
I would be my own boss.

I don't have a preference. I've only had one job, so I haven't experienced both yet.

I've had both. Indeed, right now my two direct bosses are one of each. Both have their strengths, weaknesses and quirks. I don't know that any of those things are directly related to their gender though. Both my bosses are young (one is my age, because, unlike me, he did medicine straight from school and the other is only five years older) and I think that has a much bigger impact on their leadership style than their genders.
