I believe the story is true; otherwise, why would he spend so much time here detailing it? However, most of the posters in this group were addressing his bad attitude.
As for the manager, maybe she is a coward because she just does not like him for one reason or another and cannot address it in a face to face meeting. He may or may not be displaying a bad attitude at work. If so, then it is probably not nearly as bad as indicated by his written words in this group. However, perhaps his manager recognizes the bad attitude and does not like him.

If you are a manager and do not like a worker you should still treat them in a professional manner.

Perhaps Peter would like to get your resume? This is a form of networking, you know! Wouldn't it be cool to get offered a job in London?

It depends on what the OP expects to have to do to be a success! Are you sure the OP is female? I've not seen any evidence.

Because the gender of the boss changed, I actually still suspect the OP is a troll. But I'm bored enough to play with it.
Other than that, I don't know. A somewhat feminine writing style, I guess.

But you have a rather masculine aggressive style!

I think the OP got a bit frustrated by your attitude.

I think the OP has a pattern of getting frustrated. And that wasn't really attitude - that was opinion.

What has been your experience with males working under female bosses? For me, men and women always seem to get along no matter the hierarchy.

I've personally never known it to matter either. But because I am female, I'm not sure that a male colleague would confide in me about that particular concern.

I've not had a problem with a female in charge. In accounting firms the amount of experience and knowledge that is accumulated quickly means that you usually respect your seniors on jobs.
I've seen bad female bosses just like bad male bosses.

I am curious. What do you think your manager would write about you if she were participating in this discussion? Why do you think you did not receive a bonus while everyone else did?

The manager is too busy to participate in this discussion and keepps putting off the appointment. That's a bad sign in itself. You should be able to spare time to deal with staff problems and you should stick to appointments if possible but certainly not keep putting them back.

Subtle hint? The manager sounds like a coward. If I didn't reward someone because they were bad at their job I would tell them.
