I've had bosses who were bad fits, and I've had bad bosses. I can usually handle the former. It's not like they're bad with everyone; we just don't communicate well, or see eye to eye about how things should be handled. It's a personality thing, and once I'm no longer reporting to him/her, the problem usually resolves itself.

Bad bosses, OTOH, are a different matter. I've seen them drive away whole teams to other companies. The biggest problem with bad bosses is how the company handles the problem. Most seem to be pretty unresponsive; managers are "made" guys, and the company will take the manager's side over the worker's side every time.
