Do any of you find women in management particulary difficult to work with? My function is to analyze procedures/operations and make recommendations when controls aren't quite right. This could be anything from reconciling accounts, establishing an approval process or even documenting procedures in place.
Over the course of my career its seem like the women give me the most difficulty. I try to be professional and polite and come prepared with my documentation but it seems like they dig their heels in and won't budge and even try to distract from the topic at hand.
If I invited others to the meeting and the issues are agreed upon when a report is issued these same women management types will then again disagree.
Since I am a department of one I'm feeling no one has my back. My boss is supportive but he usually has me go back and deal with it.
I'm feeling more and more like Rodney Dangerfield - I Get No Respect.
Has anyone else encountered this and how do you handle it?
