Never work with Friend and Treat CoWorkers as great aquaintances
I can tell you that having a "friend" at work is toxic! My maid of honor got me a job with her and it was a disaster. We were like sisters and then she became jealous of my accomplishments at work and began gaslighting me. Telling people at work about my personal life and when she became my boss it got even worse! Don't do it and keep your work life separate from your personal life and you will be happier.
