It depends. If I think it is constructive criticism, I take time to reflect. However, if it's just a mere snide remark, I just don't take it personally.

I just brush it off if it's more than just telling me to do the right thing. If there are already demeaning things said, then I take my stand

Ignore! If unbearable then approach his manager

Is it regarding your work or just negative in general. If it is regarding your work I would look at what I could do to better myself. If its just negative in general, I would ignore it personally.

Hi y’all! Hope this is the right bowl to post this question and get advice. I am dealing with an employer that preaches our values. The owner states that the values are important to her etc yet my manager violates these values and is involved in unethical behavior frequently. Example 1: My manager has told specialists (resourcers) that she will pay them under the table in order for her (manager) to get full credit vs splitfor the placement and therefore (barely) hit her target for the quarter.
