Working With Friends

Would You Want to Work With Your Good Friend?

My friend told me that her managers have asked her to ask around her circle of friends to see if anyone is interested in taking up a new position on her team. She's a bit hesitant about this, because she likes to keep her work and social life separate. Her opinion is working closely with one of your best friends might strain their friendship. What do you think — would you be able to work with a good friend?

No way in hell. I've been there, done that, and it just didn't work out. Just because they're a good friend doesn't mean they're also a good worker. I found that out the hard way.

I currently work with my best friend. We interviewed and were hired at the same time. It's a bit different though. Since we work in a child care, it's not like I have to rely on her or she has to rely on me to actually get anything done.

Depends on what kind of job it is, I suppose. I'm a web designer and I sometimes feel I could communicate things much quicker if I worked with people I knew very well.

At my current job I would have no problem working with my best friend or another good friend. It would actually make my job even more enjoyable.
