Female bosses were seen as more temperamental and more likely to get caught up in petty office politics
They are hormonal, incapable of leaving their personal lives at home and only too happy to talk about their staff behind their backs.
Female bosses are a nightmare to work for, a survey of employees concludes.
And it is not just men who think so.
Two-thirds of women said they preferred a male boss because their straight-talking, ‘get to the point’ attitude makes them easier to deal with.
They are also much less likely to have a hidden agenda, suffer mood swings or get involved in office politics, workers said.
About 3,000 men and women were questioned for the research, with three- quarters of men agreeing that they would rather work for a man than a woman.
A quarter of women accused female bosses of backstabbing and bringing their personal lives into the office.
And a third of those polled said women with power are ‘loose cannons’ who often feel threatened by colleagues.

- Easier to reason with
- Less likely to bitch about others
- Less likely to suffer from mood swings
- Able to leave their private life at home
- No time of the month
- More likely to share common interests
