This is correct.
Two thirds of employees agree they would rather work for a man than a woman.
Female bosses were accused of being moody and incapable of leaving their personal lives at home.
A third of those polled claimed women in charge are ‘loose cannons’ – ready to stab colleagues in the back at any time, and who constantly feel threatened by other people in positions of authority.
By contrast, both male and female workers believe male bosses were less likely to get involved in office politics, were easier to reason with and rarely suffered from mood swings.
Men are also said to be more straight-talking than women and rarely talk about others behind their backs, it emerged.
Many people I know concur: female line managers and office managers can be pure poison.
That said, I’ve had some pretty moody and insecure male bosses, too. Hell, I’ve been a moody and insecure male boss.
Perhaps it’s just that offices are appalling places that turn everyone into hateful freaks.
For the record, when it comes to project managers, women seem to be much better than men.
