    He is not an easy man to work around

    Hello all users!

    He is not an easy man to work around.

    Does "He is not an easy man to work around" mean "he is not an easy man to work with" or "he is not easy to work with" or "it is not easy to work with him"?

    Thank you.

    Yes, it includes all of those. It might also be stretched to include working not directly with him, but in his vicinity. He might talk too loudly, for example.

    How would you fit that phrase into your original sentence?
