If by 'bossing well' you mean being able to set a small AoE that actually lets the mediocre 3rd job attack spells do kind of decent damage even at the final 2 or 3 bars of a boss' HP... then yeah. But aside from a strong shield, or a guardian, they still have no defense against some of the BS summons bosses throw out, or even the attacks of some bosses themselves.
I still remember hunting Tenter Lion with my SM... the random 13k~14k insta-spell hit followed by a second one killing me in 3 or 4 seconds. When I went in there with my light Witch it's just like, 'what 16k? cool story bro it's already regenerated.'
