Morals or Money?
Let’s face it, you need the salary (we all need the salary). After all, you have a family, a mortgage and all the regular bills and expectations of a ‘normal’ life. However, the company in which you work has some element with which you are uncomfortable. Maybe it’s a behind the scenes lack of real care for the clients, maybe there is an underlying drug habit amongst a few of your peers or department heads or perhaps nepotism is rife and you’re just not one of ‘the gang’.
Just what do you do?
After some deliberation, I see four possible options:
- Keep your head down and turn a blind eye,
- confront the situation and risk being ostracised,
- bide your time and leave when you’ve found a better position,
- stand by your morals and leave pretty much immediately.
Personally, I would lean towards the fourth option, with a possible dusting of ‘three’. But taking the ‘high road’ doesn’t exactly cover the repayments on the car, does it?
What would you do?
