Do you have equity in this decision? Do you have moral or ethical issues with the pivot?

If not, personally I'd just say "Eh, it's a job. -shrug-"

Start putting out "new job" feelers now, while waiting to see where the pivot takes the company. This way you manage your expectations and hedge your bets.

I have a friend in London that has a fantastic offer from GS - he will also be in HR. But he currently has a pending charge against him that his lawyer is pretty confident that he can get the case thrown out. It’s an assault by beating charge and was done in self defense after the other person trespassed and walked up to my friend in a threatening way. My friend wants to turn it down as his lawyer doesn’t think he will pass vetting. Given the circumstances, possible he can be upfront & pass bgc?

Has anyone here ever worked/considered working in “brand management” at a CPG giant like P&G, General Mills, etc?

Or more preferably, save 80% of your earnings while working for a few years and then buy somewhere you’d actually want to live.
