A new survey compares your boss to famous Christmas movie characters. How does your employer rate?

Just in time for Christmas, the jobs website Careerbuilder has released a survey of 4,500 employees around the country – asking them “which holiday movie legend most reminded them of their bosses.” Perhaps surprisingly, there were a lot more good bosses than Bad Santas.

Here are the top 10, in order of their popularity…

  1. George Bailey from It’s a Wonderful Life – 19 percent say their boss is “well-liked, always willing to help others.”
  2. Rudolph from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – 14 percent say their boss “can navigate successfully through tough situations.”
  3. Willie, the main character from Bad Santa – 10 percent say their boss is “rough around the edges but not a bad person deep down.”
  4. Ralphie from A Christmas Story – 8 percent say their boss “stays focused on one goal and thinks about nothing else.”
  5. Kevin from Home Alone – 8 percent say their boss is “very resourceful and independent.”
  6. Ralphie’s father from A Christmas Story – 8 percent say their boss is “old school, swears a lot when things don’t go as planned.”
  7. The Grinch from How the Grinch Stole Christmas – 7 percent say their boss “keeps a distance from others, but longs to be a part of the group.”
  8. Clark Griswald from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – 7 percent say their boss is “likable but nothing seems to go right for him or her.”
  9. Santa from Miracle on 34th Street – 6 percent say their boss is  “jolly no matter the circumstance.”
  10. Buddy from Elf – 5 percent say their boss is “naive and easily awed.”
