Alin ang pipiliin ninyo sa dalawa: a low-paying job with a nice boss or a high-paying job with a mean boss?

Kung meron man dito nakachamba ng high-paying job with a nice boss, swerte nyo naman. Sana maraming ganyang jobs out there.

Ang latest realization ko nga you really cannot have it all sa isang workplace. Laging merong isa o dalawang disadvantage. Nasa sayo na lang kung tatanggapin mo siya para tuluyan ka na maging masaya sa work mo. Kung di mo kaya tanggapin, just quit. Do you agree with me? :)

Been with a couple of organizations and I cay say between the two, I've always preferred the nice boss. I know myself fully well I could only do so much, I will eventually break into pieces with a mean manager/boss. Stress does not substantiate high salary. Pretty much I won't be enjoying it anyway. Always woke up in the morning literally dragging myself to work.  Been there, done that. However, low pay probably won't let me stay long in the company - like 2-3 years but it's better than a year with a badass boss.
Veritas nunquam perit.

I will go for the high pay with the mean boss -- BASTA may safeguards. As in,  it is not with a family corporation where they can just fire you by assigning you to Mindanao (lol); but with a corporation where an HR Dept. exists, with rules & policies. 
The pay is high usually because the work is demanding, and the employer wants the best it can afford.  I see demanding work as a great opportunity to learn, and expand/upgrade my skills/expertise.

What kept me sane or from getting riled up was to not take whatever personally; it is the mean person's  burden -- he/she was brought up crude &/or chooses to show his/her inferiority complex/insecurity by venting on subordinates.   Basta hindi  sexual harassment, or murahan, puede.

I'd go for the low-paying job with a nice boss. Luckily, yung nilipatan ko'ng company, ang bait ng boss ko and sobrang okay din ng pay.  ;D

I can probably stick to the high pay/mean boss setup only if that job is an important stepping stone in my career and the boss is someone who is mean in a demanding way related to the job. Ayoko nung mga powertrippers tsaka yung mga target nila na pahirapan talaga ang buhay mo just because they don't like you or even the way you dress or something as mababaw as that. The pay has to be really high for me to put up with that, and even then, baka one year lang itagal ko.

The low pay/nice boss is not a bad option din naman for me kasi wala pa akong family and wala naman akong ibang obligations other than to myself, so hindi pa naman urgent yung need ko to earn more and more. It's nice to go to work every day na relaxed and positive ang environment. Huge, huge perk for me. My second job was ganito, not that high paying, pero tumagal ako, haha.

Low paying job with a nice boss, maybe sasabihin ng iba na impokrita pero naranasan ko na magtrabaho na sobrang bully yung boss and sobrang laki ng suweldo pero ginive up ko iyon hindi kasi nababaran yung peace of mind.
We don't need more laws, we need implementation.

working for 6 years na and always working for a mean (not so nice) boss with good pay.
iniisip ko na lang, sa lahat ng industries may ganyan and hindi mo naman talaga mapipili kung sino makakasama mo sa trabaho. kung hindi ka man malasin na mapunta sa mean boss, for sure may mean colleague or ibang mean na tao sa paligid mo and although hindi mo sya boss, maaapektuhan ka pa din ng presence nya somehow. to be honest, i need the money so i can actually adjust and bear anything, deal with anyone just to earn good money for my family. i am not from a well off family and kailangan ko magwork hard para maachieve ko lahat ng gusto at pangarap ko. dealing with mean people is not one of my weakness, not being able to provide for my family is.

^Ako rin, to add to what I posted, baka mag-iba naman ang isip ko if I imagine na someday I have a loved one or a needy person who I really really need to support financially, baka magkaroon ako ng strength tiisin more than what I think I can put up with right now. I've heard this over and over from friends who are now just having kids. Mag-iiba ang mindset mo.

^ sis, hindi pa naman ako nagwork sa isang organization na lantaran magmurahan ang mga tao. i choose din naman kasi where to work, and i make it a point na the stress will be all worth it... not just financially, pero para din sa CV ko. pero working in the middle east for 5 years now and i can honestly say na to be told stupid, "not thinking", why like this?, this is so wrong! right to your face made me as thick as i am now. haha.

point ko lang is learn not to take it personally. work is work, at the end of the day, sabi nga ng dati kong boss, i don't care what kind of people is here, even if you shout and argue 24/7, for as long as the work is done, i don't really care. work it out. if you cannot, feel free to go. when you're told something like this, you'll realize na the corporate world is really a survival of the strongest.

i have never experienced naman working for a boss na nagpapower trip at pati personal life ko apektado. mean sila workwise, and that's okay. that's who they are and who i am is someone who can and will adjust in any workplace just to make sure I grow, learn and earn good money.

in my case I had to let go because of a boss na not appreciative at may ugaling 'im the boss so I am always right all the time" I didnt need a high paying job pero mean naman un boss na makakasama mo everyday. Parang ang bigat yata sa puso non araw2 mo makakasama tapos ganon lage.hindi ka mastress sa work pero sa tao lang.

madali naman ako kausap but if they dont even appreciate the things we do and if they dont even value you paano ka gaganahan pumasok.

I once work at a company na mababa lang sinasahod ko but the boss was really good magaling magdala ng tao and ang gaan ng everyday work hours namin. Kahit pressured yun work kung magaan yung katrabaho mo at collaborative ayos parin. Too bad he was transferred to another unit at that time kaya nagsialisan dinkami when he left hehe.
all sky :)

Mas type ko yung High paying job with a mean boss hehe. Ako kasi i don't take things personally. Wala akong pake kung bungangaan ako basta bayaran mo ako tapos. pero wag lang murahin or insultuhin, so far wala pa naman akong ganong encounter. Yung boss ko ngayon may pagka bipolar lol! pag nagtatalak na siya puro ok lang sagot ko or i'm sorry or i understand tapos tapos na. I don't reason out or give an explanation unless she asks me to. I really don't care what she says kasi hindi ako nakikinig. I zone out lol. Tsaka pag hindi niya naapreciate yung gawa ko, aminin ko noon nakakainis pero overtime i've learned to just brush it off, ngayon wala nakong pake basta nagawa ko yung best ko bahala ka dyan at basta bayaran mo ako hehe.

^ Sis, ganyan din boss ko now. Worse, matindi pa magmura at mamahiya.

Mahal ko na sana current work ko now eh. Ok officemates at sahod. Malapit pa sa bahay. Si bossing lang ang panira. Siya reason kaya ko ginawa ang thread na ito.

There was a time when my ex-supervisor belittled me in front of everyone. The next day I handed in my letter of resignation. Our boss asked her why I resigned and of course she would not tell him about that incident but everyone knew she was a b**** (before me, there were already 3 who left and after me, 2 did).

Confident ako na makakahanap ako ng ibang trabaho na mas malaki pa ang sahod than that previous job, besides I was single and had no dependents.
