Preference For Male Managers

Do You Prefer a Female or Male Boss?

There are very few women at the top. Only 12 of the Fortune 500 companies are run by women. Sadly, one of the reasons may be that there seems to be a general consensus among people, even women, that male bosses make better managers. The preference for male supervisors was clearly visible from the results of a poll which surveyed about 2,000 Bristish women, 63 percent of whom would rather have a male manager over a female. The reason? The respondents felt men were better decision makers. The surveyed women also felt that female bosses have a tendency toward mood swings and were more likely to "bring personal problems into work."

I'm wondering what your opinion is — do you have a preference for a female or male boss?
