It might just be because it was bad. Just because you made it in your own time doesn't make it better.
Wow. Seriously. They were only suggestions. And who would know better about making changes, or suggest changes to improve the work place than an employee who works there. I bet if you had the chance to say something like that to an employee, you couldn't. Not in a note, or e mail. To their face.
Maybe the suggestions were bad, but the fact that OP did the report on his own time and was trying to improve the company shows a work ethic and level of dedication that should be encouraged, not rebuked. The boss didn't even have to lie. He could have simply said, "No, these suggestions aren't going to work, but, thank you. I appreciate your effort all the same."
Of course I don't give a shit if someone "disrespects" me. How fragile is your ego? You're 31 years old, act your age. And the dad thing is what little kids say to each other to feel tough. It's on about the same level as wit as your comment. Your comments account for almost a whole third of this comments section. By this point, you're abusing the right to spout stupid shit.
This has nothing to do with ego or how many comments one can make and even respect. But if you would like to comment on something, you have every right to voice your opinion and I can respect that. But to comment and voice your opinion disrespectfully, that's totally different.
Hey op, follow the work procedures unless it is not safe. Then can you actually stop right away and work until it's safe. But if your suggestions were to help improve productivity, I suggest you keep your ideas written very well and save them for when you become a boss, then if you know for sure that your ideas are great, don't give them away, especially to a p.o.s. boss like the one you have.
You will see your ideas implemented. What you will not see is your rise.
You mean raise? Yeah, it happens a lot, management puts a suggestion box or ask for suggestions from their employees to help make improvements. Isn't that why they hire bosses and supervisors and managers? Sometimes shit like this just isn't funny anymore, it gets offensive.
Hey #3, I don't know where you have worked, but most places, when a new boss arrives, it usually means changes. A boss comes in with the mentality of" I'm going to make this company/business greater/better." And many times when there is a meeting to introduce said boss/supervisor/Manager, he or she will introduce him/her self and one of two things. 1. Either come off as friendly, "We're a family, let's work together to make this the best company it can be, or 2. Intimidating, " I'm the new Boss/Supervisor and I run a tight ship, I will be keeping a close eye on employee performance, attendance, punctuality, if you don't meet specified requirements you will no longer be working here. Ha. I laugh because I know what's up. I always tell new workers, "bro's and girls or ladies, if you show up for work on time, are not absent unless you're sick, and work in a productive manner, you have and will have a job." Simple as that.
I would love to see your suggestions. Chances are you were looking at your situation from the perspective from the employee. Your boss might not think there's enough issue to make changes. As well, he likely knows more about financial and resource budgeting, talk between higher management about priorities relating to this, and even current happiness levels of employees. If you want to show you care about workplace happiness, don't just try to fix what you think is wrong. Instead, have a conversation work your boss about what you've noticed.
Sorry to disagree with you, but saying that a boss knows more about finances isn't always the case. Remember, bosses also have bosses. And the higher positions held by general managers and vice presidents, sometimes not even they deal with finance$$$. They deal with numbers. For example, this is our goal, what can we do to reach this goal. That message is most likely said in a meeting with all of management, the big gm's and vp's, they're not going to lose sleep over this, lower management might, but not as much as the employees of the company, anyone who isn't a part of management. They will get worked to reach these goals. Really messed up most of the time.
