What people genuinely hate is fake-work...work which has no meaning,no purpose,no real deadline but yet given the status of being critical & made to be done at break-neck speed to fulfill either the ego need of the Manager or his idiosyncrasies ! Imagine the boss in the doodle..makes his associate wait, do some critical task alone after office,himself enjoys and WORST, never asks for the task done, the next day. The 'MHM'..Most Hated Manager label is natural. No one minds bearing genuine pressures. It is fake work they detest. Associates see it as harassment . However brilliant you may be, team retention under such a boss will always be a concern.
