We all have our bosses.

Whether you have a flat structure or not, there’s always someone who’ll be “managing” you. Lucky are those among you, who have a great boss.

Not all are lucky though. And, here are 16 signals to watch out for.

4. His email replies are really short.


5. He picks on you at group meetings.


6. He looks for you at 7.30 pm, in the office.


7. He blames you for his mistakes.


8. He takes pleasure in praising himself, all the time.


9. He organizes parties at places HE prefers.


10. Its a ‘One on One’, but only he’s talking.


11. He shows up at your cubicle, awkwardly often.
