We're going to get a bit controversial today. Some people are pushed into making life-changing decisions because of their personal beliefs. Most likely, this has happened to you, a coworker, a friend, or relative. Let's set the stage with a few examples before you devour the news, tips, and everything else in this rich edition of our Weekly News Analysis.
1. You work at a Big Four firm and are vehemently against killing animals for human consumption. Your boss insists that you be on the audit team at a meat processing plant. What do you do?
2. You care deeply about environmental issues and you make a living by being a controller at a construction company that has just won the contract to build a facility for a chemical company that has a reputation for fouling the planet. What do you do?
3. You are an accountant at a small public accounting firm and you are strongly against abortion. The firm has assigned you to work on an account of abortion clinics. What do you do?
