Need advice ASAP.
BLUF: It seem that I have two options, which are as follows.
1. Resign without another job lined up.
2. Work to complete a project that I earnestly believe is unethical and as such potentially very damaging to the business.
Similar (I think) to the spirit of the Feedback model, I’m leaving out the details, which could be debated till the end of time and instead just stating what I perceive and feel.
Suffice to say I am not alone in my belief that the project is unethical and damaging. However, what is clear is that (including many in senior management), people have either stated or are behaving like they do not care or that they do not care enough to risk their jobs over the project.
Quite literally, many of the comments given to me by others involved echo this comment:
“…Yes it’s a train-wreck, Yes it’s unethical, Yes it’s going to severely hurt the long term success of the business. But what are you going to do? Quit?”
If I opt to stay, even if it’s only until I secure a new job, I will be expected to drive this project until its eventual completion (1-2 months). But completion would mean I played a key part in a process that by definition is contrary to the visions and values our company professes to adhere to.
Have any of you experienced a situation similar?
What did you do and what were the results?
Thank you for your attention.
