    In fact, I pity her!
    In general, expat female boss are easier to work with due to their culture. I had that experience before. When she received a compliant about her staff, she will listen to both sides. However, the same cannot be said about local chinese bosses (not all but majority). They think they owned the company and you are their slaves.

    Just my experience.

    It depends, I have worked in expat divisions before, japanese female bosses are very particular, AND China female bosses do treat their staff like slaves

    Never had the opportunity to work under a female boss before... hrmmm that doesn't sound quite right let's move on... iirc there was this article on this in ST sometime back. The results were pretty positive.

    Agreed. Usually the ang moh bosses are independent and great to work with. I guess it had something to do with their culture

    i absolutely hate female bosses. they are just plain dam stuck up, and will go 100km just to get ten cents out of u... of all the female bosses i have worked with till now, i just have to say tat they got no foresight for the big things... instead they just concentrate on the peanut matters..

    dam it, after this economic recovery, the next job i will make it a point to find a male boss, and best if ang mo boss... i will reject any offers from female boss from now on... i m really pissed off by them utterly

    SAF is a (generally) pure male working environment.

    jus look at the amount of politics, gossips, red tape, micro management, tai-chi, back stabbing, por lam pah ... ...going on.

    and everyone still complain about female officers/snr NCOs being hard to work with.

    i used to ve a female SSG (now 2WO). i wun say she was a joy to work with, but no different from my other superiors.

    in general, ang moh bosses treat their employees better. likewise for ang moh companies. they respect employees as human beings, not like slaves. most of the time, they are just trying to solve the problem, not trying to find faults with people.

    dont want to sound offensive, but in asian culture people are always trying to blame others. as long as they can blame somebody, they are happy. blame first, solve problem later. also like to tekan and squeeze people.

    male or female, i personally haven't work under a female boss before, but have worked with one from a diff department. well, in short, she (local) likes to tekan people, threaten, blah blah.

    I have had experience working with lady bosses. Most of them are OK.

    One of them was my peer. I was surprised that my MD called me up and told me that my colleague would be promoted. I supported him as she is more senior and had been on the job since the company started.

    Both of us had since left the company and now we are friend.

    It is your attitude that count. The boss must have trust in you.

    Always remember there is no such thing as fair in this world.

    U do your best and if you are not rewarded, it is time you look for another boss!
