People don’t leave bad companies. They leave bad bosses. The worst place an employee can be, is stuck in an organization with a micro-manager that doesn’t care and there are no opportunities for growth and advancement.
Employees want meaningful work, and they want autonomy in how they work. No matter how great a company’s products and/or services may be, if management is dysfunctional, that company will have serious problems. The typical ‘bad boss’ spends their time directing employees rather than empowering them. Micromanaging is oppressive, fosters anxiety and creates a high stress work environment. Eventually, employees will become disenchanted and quit to work for another company.
