    Good or bad?

    Keep in mind the structure of corporates.

    I am currently undecided.

    They say the deadliest attacks come from within...

    also, what do you have against corporates that you don't have against other things?

    Making friends at work is OK.

    You just gotta be smart and skeptical enough. Find people of your wavelength and lifestyle and stick to the bunch.

    Fvck others. Most of them would eventually turn out to be useless or a$$holes.

    But there is some sorta fun "bedding" your co-worker though.

    It turns out that most people seem to dislike my immediate boss. Puts me in a bit of a fix really. Thankfully, they don't seem to assosciate me with him yet.

    or even if they do, they don't let me know :shock:

    anyway, I'm still confused about this.

    Nah, i don't think people are really that judgmental. I'm sure they don't even care about you being with him as long as you don't keep praising him :p

    well, no. But I do think he's nice-ish. Plus we share a few common interests.

    from my personal experience i can say that.. "don't make friends within your team" u can do frndship outside ur group or team in the same offc.. why i m saying this is becoz.. wen it comes to work it should b everything professional.. once u make frndship i feel it becomes something personal.. "never ever mix professional and personal life" BJR take this from me.. i hv suffered becoz of making frnds within my team.. collegues shud b taken professionally.. or else some point of time u will be screwed by them.. becoz a person who is competing wid u will think 1st abt his career then ur frndship.. let me know wat u guyz say..??

    I've heard the same thing from way too many people to ignore it which is why I asked. Being a fresher, I thought I'd get opinions.
