    Bad manager=hard work will be ignored

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes a line manager is the cause of dissatisfaction ...such line managers do no work for the company , fuel self ego irrespective of work ethics.
    I worked hard here for more than a year..my reporting managers couldnt pin point a mistake in my work ..my only flaw was i wasnt diplomatic enough to make them feel like kings, i should have probably have not worked hard and instead just spend my time making them feel great.. if id done that i would have been promoted..instead i got harassed till to maintain my self respect i chose to leave. Manager even fillled my exit form without letting me do it.
    Let me state that this is based on the one store i worked in ..i have friends in other stores in the same company and they tell me its wonderful.
