When you post to Twitter, you’re sharing your views and experiences with the entire world. With more than 347,000 tweets sent per minute, there are a lot of conversations occurring and one topic that has its fair share of voice is “bad bosses.”
As we’ve discussed in the past, employees don’t quit their company, they quit their boss. So if you think you have a few of these disgruntled folks in your organization, time to help them change their tune or you might just be out a stellar employee who knows that a better boss is just a job away.

@earth_to_jilly, we’ve all been there, but seems like you need to have a sit down convo with your manager. It’s his/her responsibility to make sure you are being recognized and are doing work that connects you to the big picture.
A bad job with a good boss 👷
Is better than
A good job with a bad boss 👍

While a #badboss is never a good thing, @dajeeha1126 has it right – a good boss can truly make all the difference in how you feel about work.
Lol like 10 people have already quit this month. Two today. My job sucks lmao

@illMindofPayton, hope your company turns things around or they’ll probably lose you too! … Leaders – if a mass exodus happens under your watch, it’s definitely time to reassess.
A bad manager can take good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the others to lose all motivation. #badboss

Our friend @dajeeha1126 said it before and @AScout15 is saying it again – bad leadership can cripple a business. Thankfully, it is possible for a #badboss to reform. It just takes a concerted effort to put the team first – always.
My job sucks because people yell at me about things that are beyond my control daily..

Heads up to @MaraRoos’ boss – there’s never a good reason to yell. Mistakes can present the chance to learn and you’d be foolish to ignore these real-time teaching opportunities. And for all bosses out there – make sure your people understand the strategy and their role in delivering it … using your inside voice, of course.
It’s amazing how much a “bad” manager can affect a workers attitude & the sales for that day but still they are the manager *rolls eyes*

@LovelyLiz certainly hits that nail on the head. Nothing poisons the office like a bad manager.
A bad manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee, and the remainder to loose all motivation.

Here’s another Tweet that deserves an #amen. @cowgirltough23, hope you’re tough enough to endure the #badboss and that someone else in a leadership position makes some positive changes!
Love when your boss tells you to do something then someone else gets mad you did that #IHateMyJob

What’s wrong with this picture? A LOT. Looks like some major lack of communication among managers, their colleagues and team members. Time to start talking and not working in #silos!
It’s so great that after a semester working here my boss still says my name wrong and yes I’ve corrected her multiple times. #ihatemyjob

No matter how unusual the name, no good boss repeatedly mispronounces a team member’s name. @MilanaWalerius, you keep correcting your boss! And to your boss – time to practice some #Leadership 101 skills!
