currently i was working with a worst manager who controls me in everything.Two things from him is really killing me

1. he never things in our point of view, what ever he says that is correct. even if we try to explain it is very hard to explain our views.

2. he want to be very safe, we are working in risk project and ha dumps all the risk to my head and keep away from risk. if any thing happens i am responsible. i have a confidedce to finish the work, but when i feel i am not in the safe hands that really makes to nervous and fear in doing the work.


The company is ok, but his attitude makes me living in a hell.... what i have to do ?, some times i feel to get out from this job......any way its hard to find job in the current market.....

how can i manage a tough manager ... please share me some links which explains managing a tough manager.......


previously i was working in another company i had a manager, he is like a star..... i really admire him............ but here i fell like hell ...


good managers makes our life

bad managers breaks our life....

How does the rest of the team under him feel? Is this behaviour towards you only or rest of the team as well?

Rest of the team likes manager doesn't necessarily mean one should like him/her. Its purely personal point of view I believe.
Since I am also facing similar kind of problem, my new manager will not trust me and she always wants to look into my monitor to check for things. This lack of trust is annoying me infront of other team members.

For instance, recently during troubleshooting, I need to verify logs. I did verified logs and reported her. She didn't believed and she wants me to check log again and again. Finally she came to my desk spent an hour to realilze that whatever I said is correct!

It happens, I vaguely remember a nice joke about managers.

There are two parrots in the street one costs 100$ and the other one costs 10,000$. One customer
found that both parrots are same in all aspects. He asked shop keeper about the difference between the two parrots.
Shop keeper said that the second parrot is the manager of the first parrot

Hoi, Muni Sammy, that's not your real name I hope? Since that manager can also read your postings here.

Muni Sammy,
Please try to write correct English. This is not to undermine your skill or capability. I know that these editors do not have spell check feature, but at least read what you type. For example, in your first point you wrote:
"he never things in our point of view..."
Remember, you can not control people, you have control only on you.

Yes, you were a victim of misbehavior from your immediate supervisor. Unfortunately, you can not always choose your boss.

What was the project about? What were you working on? What was your role in the project? Were you writing code? Do you enjoy writing computer programs? Did you have a choice of using your favorite tools (say, Eclipse or Rational Application Developer)? Did you have problem in setting up development/test environment? How was the team spirit? Did most of the team members feel the same way about the supervisor?

About my comment on English was never meant to hurt. It is for your own good. Language is a mode of communication. When you write a computer program in any language, you are basically trying to send instructions to the compiler or interpreter or run time processor. What happens when you send a wrong instruction (semantically or syntactically incorrect statement)? The compiler or processor rejects it. Similarly, when you try to communicate in written expression, it is better to check the syntax.

Back to the point. A copy of The No A**#ole Rule might work.
