care to wager on your boss' future

Does it say more about the staff, or more about our boss when we take bets on when he/she will leave?

I'm not sure, but I know it will be both a weight lifted off my shoulders and also a big fat question mark if and when the boss leaves. Will there be a replacement? Will I have to report to someone I have absolutely zero confidence in, not that that would be a change.

At what point does someone become such a loser of a supervisor that you actually bet on the demise of their career? I mean I may be taking it a bit far with that statement, but that's what it feels like. I really hope that if I ever scramble my way up the ladder, that I am not so disconnected from my staff that they loathe me. I almost feel bad for this person, but in a I feel bad for you because you are SO clueless kind of way.

And thus my dilemma over whether to leave or not becomes more complicated. Sometimes a senior management change means a company wide change, and sometimes it's just more of the same bullshit.

Sounds like you need a change. Don't make me go find a job for you down here. I can still subliminally chant 'Florida' in your ear if you'd like.
