Why? Other than the two core reasons I already stated, maybe it's because she also has that "I am an awesome be-aht-tch". Maybe not a God complex, per se, but she kinda has that annoying "I'm the boss" aura radiating from her.
I call that a "trumpet player" attitude, because it seems like a lot of trumpet players with any degree of talent have it (Before I get attacked by trumpet players, I am one too, and have witnessed this multiple times. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.) It's the sort of attitude where one thinks they're the best to an annoying degree. Olivia is one of the best at what she does, so it's not entirely baseless, but still, it irritates.
Not only that, but she has a huge amount of pride stocked up in her. She isn't considerate of her family (even though she kicked her parents out of the house, most likely to get them away from Amestris)- especially Alex, because she sees the way he acts- his emotions- as a weakness and acts like there is no real use for it.
In some ways, this has been kind of necessary, but it's definitely insufferable.
My main issue with Olivia is that she has attitude and ambition, which are not necessarily bad things, but no apparent reason for having them. She has the drive to rule the country, but why? Her motivations are hard to work out. If we knew why she's so ambitious, she might be less irritating. (I mean, before Roy's motivations were revealed, he seemed something of an insufferable jerk as well.) I also question how Amestris would fare under her rule, because we don't really know why she wants it.
I think Olivia's pretty awesome in her own way; she just grates on the nerves at times.

Usually, I dislike all women characters in animes, tv-shows etc.
