My manager is awesome, one of two truly exceptional ones I've had (where not only are they smart, savvy people, they make me better). The top two managers I've had have been women.

I've had some pretty bad ones, but this role and the last I've been reporting to the CEO. Good bosses nonetheless

Sounds like thereโ€™ll be a lot of deflections in that 1:1 when the pressure comes lol

I like my boss, he's a good boss. He has too many reps under him to be able to give us enough attention to be a great boss.

I feel like the ideal relationship is good to get coffee with but not beers for me.
