It would be so nice to work for them. Speak of bad boss, I experienced one. Life was a hell because of her.

I am a retired (several times now) 72 year old Gramma. I always worked and still do part-time. But over the years I can tell you from experience, the worst bosses by FAR were women.

"Yeah" personally I want to see and even read a great story about the earths hardest working people....  Not the the **** about the worlds most connected man, not about those rich **** snobs who have the gift of gab....  I mean the worlds hardest working people who will get down and dirty into the worst job conditions and have to slave away daily in back breaking labor for a little bit of cash on Friday....  And show us 10 of those people, you know the kind of guy/gal that never stops no matter how hard things get or how deep the **** gets....


Those are real people, not these people with giant ad campaigns who rake in the big bucks and leave a few dollars here and there so they don't have do everything themselves....

No. 2: Alan Mulally Boeing could have kept this guy and maybe delivered the 787 on time but they went with a loser Jimbo McNerny!

Ken Walker was one that could have been on this list, had it been made a few years back. He took over Meineke in the 90's, and did a fantastic job and was much cared for, by employees of the franchisor, as well as it's franchisees.

Yeah... not. Please stop running stupid propaganda articles.

what happened to Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn, Casino moguls? 

neither took taxpayer-subsidized government bailouts to stay in business and they employ, between all their casino's and other endeavors, approximately half-a-million people with high-paying jobs and awesome benefits. 

neither is fond of this blithering idiot occupying the White House and his anti-business administration, so that's probably why they aren't mentioned.

The best boss you will ever have is yourself, unless you enjoy enslavement like a moron b@tch.

The thing about workplace sunshine and happiness surveys - when they're done by the workplace, there's the threat of retaliation for complaints and low scores.  HR and the bosses carefully analyze the confidential surveys to determine which employee said what and then those employees mysteriously start getting poor reviews.  It's called "weeding out the bad apples."  The survey used for this?  Who do they think is spending time on their website raving about how good the boss is?  (Hint - not the people making 10% of his salary.)

Wait a damned minute.  How the hell can they possibly be happy?  They don't have Union representation.  Those corporate crooks must have forced them to say they were happy.

Survey 1000 people and suddenly the poll "speaks" for America. Another total BS story from a Media that gets worse every year that goes by . . .

I'm fortunate in the fact that no of these snot-nosed idiots are my boss. Mine is sitting in the office right behind me.
Apr 7, 2014 11:57AM
I'm the best CEO I've ever worked for.  I make it a point to never SCREW my employee. It's true that I'm a "task master" and a royal pain in the rear but I'm fair.

Linked-In... colluding alumni blockading the nation from recovery. Instead of credentials, badges and baloney, we need REAL human resource people with ACTUAL understanding of what the business does that DON'T hire the college-sorority-fraternity, they hire the people who can WORK and have COMPETENCE.

Congrats to those who took these honors BUT -- does anyone else besides me notice anything about this list?  Such as, they are all WHITE MEN?  So what does that say about the opportunities for women to run these mega sized organizations?  Glad the guys are doing a great job, but a little mix would go a long way.......just saying

Most times the difference between a great boss and a bad one is whether you are doing your job as it should be done..... The bosses between great and bad are most likely directly correlated with your performance. I give credence and realize there may be a few exceptions
