I have a company I'm looking to work for, and I happen to know one of their top clients. (Specifically, the manager that contracted with my prospective employer!) Is it okay for me to contact this person to get some insight on the company?
Would it be appropriate/wise to email the person I've interviewed with and ask him if it would be all right for me to make this contact?
I'm concerned that I might leak information from one party to the other and somehow sour my chances of getting hired.
(sorry for the vagueness, but I'm also afraid of leaking information HERE!)
