Hey all. Need some help on advice a friend asked of me. Do you fire a friend any differently than a regular employee?
About a year ago a friend of mine took a new job. She then recruited a former direct of hers to come to the new company and work for her again. Long story short, it's not working out. My friend's employee isn't happy, neither is my friend or her boss (the CEO).
It's a very small company (15 employees, tech start up, just got some funding and VERY fast paced).
My friend is torn up, because she feels like she is going to lose a friend. I have tried to mentor her towards the fact that she's her employee first, friend second, but obviously it's very hard.
I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance.
