I've encountered similar people - act like a **** in the office and pleasant outside. Worse, some of them thinks this makes it ok - so for example they're allowed to yell and scream in the office but as long as they're a 'good egg' in the pub somehow that's fine.
Sometimes people justify it to themselves simply on the basis that it works - but that's insane, because it doesn't. Alright, if you're senior enough, to some extent you can do as you please. But when middle management act like that, all that happens is all those in the firing line resolve never to do anything helpful/beyond the call of duty, for that person.

ejoch -- are you talking about "Gordon" (not his real name), a British boss-from-hell recently publicly criticized for bullying the staff who work at his home-office?
