Is it better to work with women or men?



Sometimes with women you get drama, and with guys you get childish behavior, even from older men.

Go figure.

Women are infinitely more fun to sexually harass. I'll go with them.

I have to say Women.


My boss is a woman and she let's me do whatever I need to do.
She's so-ooo cool to work for ... because she doesn't harrass and she gives me my space.
She also knows I'm gonna get my work done everyday without fail and in a timely manner for our company.
So her just letting me do my job is the BEST thing she can do to have me succeed.

I'm sorry to say, but I've generally found this true as well.

I totally concur. In fact I concur to the nth degree. In my experience, they spend most of the time talking about non-work related stuff, they've broken down in tears because their housemate is given them grief, they swear profusely, they backchat about every single person they come into contact with, they dress suggestively if they're having problems with their other half at home,.................. I mean come on!!!

I'm the only woman on my team at work and have been since I started (4 years ago). There are other women other places in the department. I wouldn't have it any other way. There is no drama, none, at least not on our team. The men are more honest, tend to wear their emotions on their sleeves, and just aren't as malicious as women can be. The only incidents I've experienced where I've been judged unfairly based on gender has been from our clients, not from my co-workers.

I'm a pretty independent person and I have just a few close friends. For me, work is not a social event, so I don't need women I can relate to or vent to. At work, I want to work. The men I work with get the job done. We get along well at work, but don't need to be each other's best friends.

Yeah, it totally depends on the person. But I do wanna punch my (male) boss and 'princess' secretary in the face.

I've worked with backbiting nasty people and perfectly lovely people of both sexes. I don't think gender makes a bit of difference.

I think there are pros and cons to both, although, I prefer working with men overall. Women tend to be more catty (men can be, but it seems to be more rare) and way more dramatic. Guys are usually more lighthearted, laid back, and less temperamental. Guys tend to be less organized and messy, in my experience. Women, as someone pointed out, seem to be a little more understanding. But, really, it does depend on the person.

I prefer to work with men as well. And in my experience, they are easier to get along with in positions of authority than women.

When talking about school, I would usually prefer to work with women because they are more reliable and better about dividing up the work equitably and contributing to the group.

I've found it waaaay easier to sexually harass men. They don't ever expect it.

My department is mostly men. I'm the youngest woman by 25 years. We refer to our office as "The Locker Room." We have too much fun at work. The things said in the office should never be repeated. Ever.
I really enjoy working with men. I have one close female friend who is technically in the English department but we claim her as one of our own since she loves the childish behavior as much as we do. I think my male coworkers secretly like the fact that there are only 2 of us girls.

I do work with one complete douchebag. He is the most arrogant prick I have ever met. He's a one-upper. He thinks he knows it all and I've made it clear that I think he's full of horseshit. When he first started he tried to talk down to me about football, as if I was some stupid girl who only likes a team b/c of the colors or whatever.

I agree 100%. When curriculum work has to get done 99% of the time the women in my department get it done.
