Never hire your friends...got burned
Long story short, one of my buddies got done with. One of our MDs didn't love his resume but I stuck my neck out for the guy. He's a smart guy and fits the IB bill.
Anyways, he's been here two weeks. Called out sick a few days and he calls me today tells me he's not going in. I ask him where he is and he's in Vegas gambling.... i couldn't even fathom this when he told me and just feel disrespected. I told him he's probably not cut out for banking but he said he didn't care.
I might be a bad guy to say that if he gets fired I won't care but at the same time, him leaving puts more stress on our deal team because we have to pickup his slack.
Do I tell my boss to fire him? Or just let natural selection take its course?
