It's pretty obvious when you have a horrible boss. From the verbal abuse to the micromanaging to the refusal to respect your time, it doesn't take a genius to recognize when your manager is the sole cause of your misery.
But sometimes, the signs aren't so obvious. Especially when the person you report to is likable, perfectly pleasant, and competent. But those traits don't mean jack if, actually, your boss isn't a good boss. In fact, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it's entirely possible that what you have on your hands is a bad manager, and it's high time you face it, unless you don't give a fig about your career.
These five signs might surprise you, but stop for a second and think about the damage they're causing (think: stunted career and lack of advancement). While it might be nice to work under someone you get along with, that's far from the only thing you should value in this relationship.
