Both male and female workers prefer to have a man as their boss, according to a survey
Two thirds of employees agree they would rather work for a man than a woman. Female bosses were accused of being moody and incapable of leaving their personal lives at home. A third of those polled claimed women in charge are 'loose cannons' - ready to stab colleagues in the back at any time, and who constantly feel threatened by other people in positions of authority. By contrast, both male and female workers believe male bosses were less likely to get involved in office politics, were easier to reason with and rarely suffered from mood swings. Men are also said to be more straight-talking than women and rarely talk about others behind their backs, it emerged. Both men and women are in total agreement that men make better bosses - 63% of women and 75% of men comparatively.
