Meh, if I could find a better job, I would take it. I enjoy a lot of the work I do, it's just the work load is overwhelming. My boss, it's weird because for about 8 years he was a co-worker in the same group, now he's my boss. It's odd a times. Oh well, I have a job, it pays well, and I enjoy the work. It could be a lot worse.

My boss is cool and my job is pretty ok for 90% of the time. Every once in awhile I have to deal with a complete idiot that doesn't feel like they should have to follow the same rules as everyone else and it's frustrating because punching people is frowned upon at my workplace.

Yes. My boss is nice, and does what I need in a boss, which is to stay out of my way and let me get the job done in my own way. He also doesn't worry about tardiness and has never denied a leave request. I love my job. I get to spend about a million dollars a year improving the lives of those less fortunate than myself, and I spend about $200K of that drawing down about half million in child care matching funds, so in all I get to spend about $1.3 million annually on programs for low-income elderly, at-risk kids, and the homeless. It's wonderful knowing that doing my job well makes a difference for people in need.

Yes and yes. Although I could use a day off...

I'm lucky enough to say that my boss has been my friend since I was in grade school. There have been a few times at work she was super harsh on me, but it was when she was going through a lot of stress at home/work, and she knew I'd take it and still be her friend. I've forgiven her, and now, she's pretty darn good at guaranteeing that I have job security. I do not have to worry about getting fired unless I start stealing from the job or something.

As for my job, it's relatively easy, and a lot of times it's slow enough that I can make jewelry, Christmas ornaments, scrapbooks and the like while I'm at work. The health insurance stinks, and there is no room for advancement, those are the worst two things though. There are other things that can frustrate me, but I'm following others advice and trying to look at it differently, and it seems to have made all the difference in the world.

Absolutely! The leadership here really understands how well a company will function if you take good care of the people. Breakfast and afternoon snacks are provided every day, as well as a relaxation and recreation area for all the workers.

I currently love my position, since I'm having to learn something new every day...it hasn't become boring at all. The stress level is high sometimes, mainly due to having to learn new things all the time, but I generally like that kind of atmosphere.

Yes and yes as well. No really. I tell people I really like my job and company and they get all bitter beer face on me. Lucky? I guess so.

Last week I liked my boss. This week I'm waiting to find out who my new boss and teammates will be, since we're completely reorganizing. It's not looking very promising so far.

It looks like I'll be directly reporting to someone with very little experience in the field, and zero management experience or training. And I'll have a second boss who I don't report to that will write my performance reviews.

Recipe for success?

I own my business and the management sucks.

No vacation, no sick days, no pension and I have to answer to my 4 and 6 year old(s). lol

Loved my boss. Loved my job. He got fired (politics).

Liked his replacement. He got fired within a month (politics).

Retired. No boss.

Love my job!

Yeah, it pays the bills and most days are different as to what I have to do. After nearly 30 years, I'm pretty settled.

My boss is, without a doubt, the best boss in the entire universe. There is nothing I wouldn't do for him. He's an ace. He'd give me the shirt off his back if I asked him.

Btw...I'm self-employed. ;-)

When I worked for movie theaters as a projectionist, I would say most definitely. However, a few years and a new job later I have a boss who regularly laughs in my face when I make a request for time off, tells me I can't have Sundays off because my faith/personal beliefs don't count, and cooks the books on scheduling so I end up usually losing about an hour from my paycheck weekly.

So no, I have to not really.

It's not about like or dislike to me, the point is just if i can handle it.

I like my boss. Both personally, and professionally. Do I like what I'm doing? Not really. I should be doing more system architecting and leading a large team at this point in my career instead of being a Sr. code monkey. But, since I decided to telecommute as a lifestyle, I think that sort of put a glass ceiling above me when I'm part of a company that the culture isn't that of telecommuters. And, I don't mind the company I work for, and don't plan on leaving... so I can just peer up through the glass ceiling. From my house :-) I could complain, but it would be silly to.
