Who is younger than you are?

Gender doesn't matter. I've worked for good and bad in both. It depends on the kind of person they are.
I work in departments on a temporary basis, so I have a balancing act of not treading on people's toes and managing a small department. As long as you're fair and respectful, workers respond in kind, mostly.

Younger? Yes, if they can do their job competently, no problem.

Shed be riding me thats for sure.

But seriously, I rather not work for women.

@Glassysky okay thank you.

I have worked for three different women and truth be told, each was every bit as good as 99% of the men I worked for, often better.
As in she's the boss?
Haha. I don't think it's a big deal, as long she knows what she's doing + treats everyone with respect.

Yes, their attitude is all that matters.

What's wrong working for a woman?
Mindful · 56-60, F
I just want to say wow! Society has changed in the last 30 years, but it has taken 40 or 50 years to be on the cusp of fairness. We are NOT there yet. We are all growing, that or I have the best circle on SW!

As a professional, did it with no problems.
At least no more and neither less problems than with men. may have some weight about experience, but not at all gender related.

long as we got off on the right foot we had a good understanding and working relationship no problem here 🤷‍♂️ [spyfool]

Looking back over my career I was only thinking the other day, I work better with a female boss. It can be any age.
CestManan · 46-50, F
Yes because they are less likely to try to throw around their weight.

If she's a good person, with good intentions

I typically always have.
Yes... I have... in part cause I'm retired Army... and in the civilian world nearly all my bosses have been in the company longer than me... so I've had female bosses and female head of departments.
I’ve never really worked “for” someone, so I don’t know.
@Mindful it’s always been contract work. I’ve only had three jobs different in my life, but none of them were jobs where you clocked in and had a boss as such.
Mindful · 56-60, F
@DarkHeaven that sounds intriguing. Do you have a KLing post that says more about your work?
@Mindful I’m a musician… and honestly not working rn. I’ve kind of decided to become for rn a housewife for my beautiful bride to be. We are getting married within the year and she is going to be making me the happiest girl alive by becoming my wife. 😊
Would and have. [b]Their[/b] behavior would determine how I felt about it. One of my favorite managers who helped me get promoted and became a personal friend (still is) was a younger woman.

I don't work for anybody besides me. Having a boss is like being in hell
Mindful · 56-60, F
@empanadas how do others feel about working for you?
empanadas · 31-35, M
@Mindful regardless of gender working for someone and making them rich sucks.

I treat the people that work with me like family. I had such bad experiences with bosses that I made sure I will never be like them.
Mindful · 56-60, F
@empanadas love the second paragraph
