Life at work can be funny, challenging, ridiculous, and -- yes, even satisfying. Here at Safe For Work, we're all about helping you find balance and happiness in your career. After all, many of us spend more time with our co-workers and clients than with our friends and family. Hosts Liz Dolan and Rico Gagliano give advice on everything from how to avoid burnout on the job to how to fake an illness when you're calling in sick. We also talk to experts about those moments at the office that can challenge the best of us: negotiating raises, knowing when it’s time to move on...or dealing with that annoying office mate with no boundaries. From Wondery, the network behind Business Wars, Safe For Work is helpful career advice that's lively and fun, just like your work life should be. In every episode, Liz and Rico talks with callers, business leaders and noted know-it-alls who share their hard-earned wisdom from the trenches.

i miss my boss ,

Good, but not as fun as it used to be

I loved ‘I Hate my Boss’ (I would have given it 5 stars) and the way that people wrote in or left a voice message, allowing the hosts to interpret the issue in multiple ways. It meant that the ‘problems’ could apply to various people and capture the imagination of the listener. The issue with the phone conversations from the public is that it takes that mystery element out of the equation. Sadly, it also makes the show a bit less funny and engaging; sometimes it feels like you are listening to unnecessary small talk. Also, not so keen on the cheap sounding music (sorry if that’s harsh) which pops up quite often now...

Otherwise, its a good show and I think Liz is great. But pleaaaase go back to the old question format so I can write/call in!
