Who would you rather work with?


Fast Company is posing an interesting poll question: Who would you rather work with? Someone less-skilled but likeable, or more-skilled and a jerk?

I voted for less-skilled and likeable, my reasoning being that people can learn skills, but we're kind of stuck with our personalities. Having worked with a few jerks in my lifetime, I don't care how good they are at their jobs if they make life miserable for everyone around them. That interferes with everyone's productivity and brings the whole group down. But that's just what I think. Love to hear your views (and do go vote at the FastCo poll).
