Today, five minutes before the interview, my manager grabbed me and asked me to participate in an interview with a potential candidate for a software developer position. I did the technical part of the interview and the candidate did really well. At the end of the interview, the candidate asked me and my manager the question: "What do you dislike the most in the company?".
How should I approach this question when my honest answer would be "my manager"?
Trying to be diplomatic in this situation I went with some other thing (my job is not challenging enough) that I don't like currently at the workplace but it is by no means a deal-breaker. I also wanted to reply "the salaries" but I guess that wouldn't be professional.
What kind of things can I or should I say as the interviewer when being approached with this question from an interviewee (keeping in mind that my manager is sitting next to me)? Should I be totally honest and say "my manager"?
Note: the candidate would have the same manager as I do now. I work in Scandinavia if it matters.
Edit: someone marked this question as a duplicate so I need to explain here how this is not a duplicate of Tough curveball interview questions . The linked question is different because it explains how to answer the questions as a candidate, not as the employer. It explains what an employer is looking for when asking this questions, not an employee. In addition to that my situation today was especially tricky since I had my manager sitting next to me so I had to be extremely careful with my answer.
