A bad job with a Good Boss is Better than a Good Job with a bad boss

From LinkedIn:


My boss made a mistake on a project we were working on and instead of owning his mistake, he said it was my fault. I sat through that meeting feeling shocked and disappointed. Although this happened a couple of years ago. I remember the details quite well.

When we left the meeting he told me, "You are a good sport.” I knew I needed to start planning my exit strategy. I loved my job but I couldn’t trust my boss. He would throw you under the bus in a heartbeat to make himself look good. In spite of how good a job is, once you don’t have a manager that has your back, you will be miserable in that job.

A bad manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation.

People don't leave bad jobs, They leave bad bosses.
