Your life becomes way easier when you are in the good books of your boss. You can drop in your inputs easily, you are well informed about the office ongoings, and your presence is acknowledged. However, in case your boss does not like you, your life at the office can become troublesome. The first stage of boss wrath is when your instincts start telling you that there is something fishy. Over the time, by observing carefully, you can easily figure out if your boss hates you. Here is a list of signs that your boss does not like you:-
#1. Your opinion does not matter- Your views are often uninvited. Even if you dare to give in input, it is brushed aside at an instant. At times, you do not even get to finish pitching your idea.

#5. The leftovers– You get the projects and assignments which no one else is willing to do. It might also be a possibility that the project you were so excited to work on gets allotted to someone else. These are some of the definite signs of your boss’ hatred towards you.

#6. Disagreements– When your boss does not like you, he might as well just disagree with everything you say. There is always something wrong with whatever you say or do, even if everyone else is doing the same thing.

#7. Negative feedbacks– If it has been a long time since you got a feedback and even those rare comments are entirely negative in nature, you should reconsider your relationship with your boss.

#8. Out of the loop– You are always left uninformed on the ongoings, meetings, key changes, or even the private office jokes and office parties. All of this happens when your boss does not like you.

#9. The raise issue- Not getting a raise might be due to various factors like company’s financial instability. However, when you see everyone around you grow, and your demand for salary increase is denied without giving you any sufficient reasons, it might be a sign of your boss’ hatred towards you.

#10. Body language- It can be easily observed from the body language of a person if he likes you or not. When your boss maintains no eye contact with you and does not turn to you directly while having a conversation with you, then this is a sign that he does not like you.

#11. While you quit- We all like to believe that our company will not let us go since we have been working at our best here. However, when your resignation mail is accepted at an instant, and your boss seems to be happy to let you go, it comes as a major blow. Maybe, it is a sign that your boss never liked you anyway.
