Boss is being criticized.
The head of my department in the company that I switched to this year has been very kind and we barely talk to each other. But once in while when I ask him questions, he handles it very kindheartedly. To be honest, because of my intern status, he has every right to assign all sort of tasks ( tell me what to do ), however he has been only very polite and respectful. Furthermore, I am the type that rarely speaks. However , female employees from other departments call him a lunatic and curse him out. Also saying that he is fake, treats them rudely and that I should be careful, since no one knows when he is going to switch on me.
Although it has been 8 months since I moved to this company, I still find it hard to imagine him being a psychopath. Especially since he seems to have good manners. Despite not understanding why he is being reproached, after hearing all of that, I am mentally distancing myself.

I hope you watch out for that female employee. They may be cursing you out in front of other people.
