Old coworker is finally leaving the most toxic work environment I’ve ever experienced. CEO once told my coworker a monkey could do his job. Now that he is leaving, suddenly they are frantic to find a replacement. My friend found a replacement and left him on the desk. (BDR is not business development. It’s backup disaster recovery.)

I guess it was a bit of my mistake not asking for a complete written role description, so I just trusted the consultant recruiter on his description of the role. And by it I was unsure if the position could be a fit ...
