  2. Doesn't trust or empower you

  4. Doesn't advocate for you when it comes to compensation
  5. Hires/promotes the wrong people
  6. Doesn't back you up when there's a dispute with a customer/client
  7. Doesn't provide proper direction on duties/assignments
  8. Micromanages you
  9. Focuses more on your weaknesses rather than your strengths
  10. Doesn't set clear expectations
