    hi,
    Its a advantage as well as disadvantage for you. your attitude should be very clear on this and only have to concentrate on your work. as the same condition might your ex-wife also feeling as she is your boss. As she knows you better and you also know her so its a good thing. The only thing is that you do your work on time with no error. she also understands you so it will help both of you.

    The other thing you can do is never talk about your past when you talk to each other.

    She is also professional and might have other relation ship so she will not harm you. As you both know each others pros and cons.

    Dear you do not need to feel uncomfortable while working in the office premises and try to believe in the fact and in present and fact says that your senior is your ex-wife and you will have to follow all instructions of your senior office and your professional career is on it's right place but you should leave your past personal life behind and care about your work because if you will let your personal life enter in the profession then it would be a big problem for you because she is on higher position than you so that she can save herself but you can not save yourself and try to accept the condition and be positive and make your attitude as professional and try that you have forgot everything whatever happened in your past then you will easily be able to manage your all works

    All the best

    Hi friends...

    I think this disadvantage for you.
    Your attitude should be very clear on this and only have to concentrate on your work.
    As the same condition might your ex-wife also feeling as she is your boss.
    As she knows you better and you also know her so its a good thing.
    The only thing is that you do your work on time with no error.
    she also understands you so it will help both of you.

    So you can manage your work each other

    Thanks!!!

    all the best...........

    Hi,

    In my opinion, the situation you have mentioned will not last for a long time...
    Though it is correct that people should work any type of job...but since there are some past relation with your boss...you should avoid that...
    Work with her calmly and try immediately for the change....It will help you to grow....
    Since there are some relation with your boss in past...you will have many if's and but's while work with her...
    Hence suggession is that unless you get another job, please do the best work and leave tention ahead....Don't let others know the relation and also told her the same thing...otherwise both of you will face issues...
    Good luck...
