Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about weak boss:
My boss allows one of his peers to run rough-shod over the employees in our department. She is not the type of person who swears but most of the attacks are personal and very upsetting. She interrupts people, blames others for her failures, changes her mind about decisions that have been agreed to and signed off on. The people in her department, from what I have heard, do not like working for her. One run in that I had occurred when my boss and I were discussing a project that I was managing for her area. I had put in hours of non-paid overtime so that we could keep to her deadline and all I was getting from her area were complaints. She happened to call while I was in his office and he put her on speaker phone.
