Read the conversation below / Lee la conversación de abajo:

A: Listen Amanda, what’s your impression of Karen, our supervisor? She doesn’t seem to get on well with the people in the department.

B: No, she doesn’t. She’s always kind of annoyed with everybody, she doesn’t ever praise anyone, she doesn’t even remember our names!

A:  Yeah, she doesn’t appear to enjoy her work anymore.

B: Richard says that she’s got strong negotiating skills.

A: Maybe, but I find working with her a bit difficult on a daily basis. For example, even though I arrive at 9:00 I have to wait an hour for her to turn up because she doesn’t get in until 10:00. Then she has her coffee and reads her mail so she doesn’t really start work much before twelve. I feel that we waste a lot of time every day and I’m sure it doesn’t make a very good impression on our clients. On the other hand, she stays in the office longer than me, and she always gives me that funny look when go home in the evening.

B: Evidently, being in the office from nine in the morning doesn’t count for her! What do your colleagues say about her?

A: She doesn’t really talk to anybody. She’s always busy or in a hurry, or late for a meeting… Many people say she doesn’t give them the support they need.

B: Do you think we should talk to Richard about this?

A: It’s a good idea.
