Here are some of the things experts say an employee should never say to the boss, along with tips to leaders and managers to keep an open mind and encourage open communication from all of their workers.
Derek Capo, CEO and Founder, Next Step China, said that job seekers or employees should never tell their bosses that they are working with them just for money, as this shows that they will leave if the company fails to give them a raise or if their peers start to make a lot more money than they do, the Herald Sun reported.

When something important doesn't get done, the worst thing one can say is, "You never asked me to do it." But according to Ken Cauley, President, Advanced Media, there are few better ways to neglect yourself of that promotion, a raise, or even job security.

According to Patrick Conley, Founder and CEO, Automation Heroes, saying "I want to do what's easiest" during an interview is the most explicit way to alert your boss that you don't care about improving your skill set without directly telling him.

Conley suggested that you should never do this if you care about your career.

Complaining about your job and telling your boss that you could be doing other things is one thing you should never do. Danny Wong, Co-founder, Blank Label said that if your job is good, be grateful for it and if you want more out of your job, make it happen.
