Bad bosses, on some occasions, are not ready to take the reins of a leadership positions, or may just lack the skills to hold some form of managerial position, but when it comes to bad bosses, these people are the ones that just genuinely make you dislike going to work.
Three out of 4 employees report that their boss is the worst and most stressful part of their job, while 50% of employees who do not feel valued plan to look for another job in the next year.

Many people have worked for bad bosses—maybe you’re working for one now. Dealing with a less than effective manager, or just plain bad managers and bad bosses, is a challenge too many employees face.
Gallup says only 10% of people possess the talent to be a great manager. So that probably means you know a lot of bad bosses.
Sometimes, employees end up working longer (two years, on average) for toxic bosses than nontoxic bosses. Why? Mainly because quitting is hard. But, people stay in jobs with bosses they don’t like for a multitude of reasons.
People enduring high-stress situations often suffer from emotional exhaustion, robbing them of the energy needed to search for a new situation. It’s hard to quit without another opportunity lined up, and it’s hard to line up another opportunity when one feels depleted. Emotional exhaustion also strips people of the ability to envision a more positive experience — and hopelessness ensues.
