Here is the correct list: 1. Most bosses are insecure. They want slaves, not employees. 2. Indian Bosses want their reportees to work for THEM not for the company. 3. If you perform well, but your boss does not like you - an excuse will be found - and you will be fired. 4. Cracking jokes is a bad idea. 5. If you find a fair, good boss - you would be in minority 1% of employees in india. 6. Incompetent people too become bosses, simply becz of number of years of experience. You will likely report to one. 7. More Incompetent the Boss, more Complexity he would love. Simple solutions would scare him. 8. Don't lose your goodness, even if you have to work for incompetent or evil people.
The person you are is more important than employee you become.

The boss has to manage different persons of different caliber. As to how each persons caliber is utilised, will be the good boss. Juniors thinks as if he knows better than the old boss, as he knows little of different sections of one unit. Managing a small state as Modi thinks does not mean that he could manage entire India which has different culture and languages etc. In fact Chandra Babu Naidu concentrated more in computerisation than agriculture caused him heavily and Rajiv too. Person who speaks loud, as if great, like modi may create a hype but not necessarily be successful. MMS, a great economist has been able to manage economy satisfactorily while entire world suffered recession but seems to be not successful in other sectors. Hence the opposition trying to encash his failure.

There are duffer people in an organisation like RaGa who because of their lineage (not ability) become bosses. And then screw the entire company. LOL

All the Boss was also young when they join and would have spoken against his bosses then. After he gets full power,responsibility and experienced facing different failure/success etc he becomes (seems to be)lesser efficient. When you become old and experienced you will also be like him and the new entrant will speak of you, like you speak now.
Most of the "things" in this list are very "general"!
The only thing to get done on day one is to find out what impresses the boss!
And in most cases it isn't your ability to do a great job of completing the task handed to you!
Most bosses want a person they can "trust" which means a person who will not stab them in the back!
So on day one or two, see to it that you get to a have a "frank" chat with him or her and "pledge" your "support", "loyalty" and "trustworthiness" to your boss after finding out what your boss wants you to do "most"!
Don't worry, since nothing is on paper (hopefully), you can always renege on your "pledge" once you have figured out the power structure and your "path to success" in your new workplace!
This list is good to follow only if you are completely lost after speaking with your new boss or if you are hired in a high attrition organization where employees come and go like passengers at a railway station!
After all, you are the best judge of your workplace situation, since you are there and every workplace has its own peculiar conditions!
