would you rather work on your own or work as part of a team?

working on your own would mean knowing all the ropes of the task you were assigned with and you will have the outcome that you want. you don't have to suffer the negative effects of a team member's action if something went wrong. however, working as a member of a team means more heads to decide, more opinions to consider, and probably a better outcome too. what do you think about this?

well it depends on the work, if it can be done by one person i think i would rather work on my own then somebody shadowing me from behind.

I've always preferred to work on my own. You have to work at the speed of the slowest member of a team, and often have to do work over that other team members have messed up. There's always a team member who knows that others will cover for him or her if he doesn't do a good job, and will try to get away with as much as possible. And some people you're forced to work with are just plain incompetent.

I think both have their advantages and disadvantages. But to be honest, I prefer to work on my own since I work very fast and am a bit of a perfectionist. So it makes things much easier for me, in many ways.

I have always worked on my own. I like setting my own goals and making my own decisions. Things always move faster and I know if everything is getting done on time. I always worked as a subcontractor on jobs. That way I bid the job not the time. I made more money that way and I worked my own hours. Shalom~Adoniah
