What impact does a bad boss have on one’s career?

Technology: General
What does a bad boss do to you and your career? First, let us identify the two types of “bad” bosses – the incompetent and the nasty. The incompetent boss will let you do all the work.

You can work on your own and find ways to come up with the best decisions. The nasty and manipulative boss will get all the credits for the work you have done. He will make you realize that life is indeed unfair. It will make you more resilient and look into the positive side. You learn how to analyze situations and think politically.
