We all have some dream jobs, which make us crave us for more and more every second of our lives. All this ends up with hyped up expectations from the current work place. From expectations of employees from managers to expectations about the work type, everything seems like less than deserved. I get it, we are raised while watching Horrible Bosses. Let’s have a look at the employee expectations list and see how they turn into reality.

Expectations From Job V/S Real Time Letdowns

Don’t you feel that your manager is just not able to understand you? He/she is just not getting it that you want more every second of your life. And, that ‘more’ is definitely not work.

Caution: Somethings are relatable AF, you might put a resignation after reading this.
