If you think your immediate superior has a serious problem, would you normally feedback to the management/director?

I'm caught in this, though i be leaving the workplace somehow kind of think it'll be good for the director to know. Least they could investigate and take measures for benefit of the business.

How's the culture in UK? How do people generally respond to this?

Uhuh!!!
we are in same boat. i had some problem with my superior last few months.
i am still a trainee and not a full time staff because i was attached to this company by my college.
got to finish this training to get my cert.
so when we were in the middle of the problem, i wrote to the HR manager telling her my prob.
well, things solved after the hr manager changed me to other dept and my current superior is much much much bettaaaaaaaa!!!
well,cant wait till Nov....I'll be free after that!!!
Good Luck to you!!

i think it depends on the culture of the company, i know that still in many offices they don't like to hear it and bullying will follow after it. But on the other hand, i know that at least in holland you can quite easily speak towards your boss.. and if you have good arguments.. (and you think you don't have to search a year for a new job) why not?

Dont you have an exit interview ? Normally you 'verbally' bring up the issue to the HR side of your pull and push factor of leaving the company.

My company consists of 25 staff. Eversince the new General Manager came in last year , we had turnover of 20 staff and the amazing race is still on going ( race to tender resignation letter !! )
Our director cant do anything about it cause they are the one who hired the new GM ( dignity issue, i guess )
We were once a happy family but things change once the management change.
I am crossing my finger to be the next 21. Having to say that , anyone looking for a marketer ? :P

I criticised one of the managers at my exit interview from the last job, because she was a terrible bully and was awful towards some of the other staff (not me particularly, I'm so likeable it would be difficult ). In retrospect in probably came across as a sour grapes parting shot. I think it would have been much better to have raised it with my director at the time and got something done about it.

Hello Skyef:)

For me, it would depend on what type of problem the management had.
If they were doing something criminal, I might tell.
If it was a more minor problem, I would not tell, unless I was asked by a manager, that I felt would handle the situation well.
