How should you approach a partner about rolling off of a client that you are morally opposed to? I’ve put 6 months, built some business (~2M), but I’d rather wash my hands.

I could just leave, but I’d like to find a way to communicate that I’ve done a good job, but don’t want to continue, and I would like help finding a new assignment.

It is a reasonable thing that you are morally opposed to?

I think our work is THE most impactful place to make a stand - in our position we have access to the decision makers in the most impactful companies. Everything else is one or two steps removed in attempts to influence them.

However, being opposed to your clients core business model is a non starter in trying to change them and you need to leave before you do say something.

The issue is that it’s legal. The morally dubious choice of doing it to make money is not something you can change.

Have you been fired before even starting your new job?

I signed for a new job two months ago and will start next month (3 mo notice period in Europe). They were very keen on getting me on-board ASAP before signing but since I signed the contract it has been silent from the new employee. I've emailed them with questions as I'll be re-locating to NL and it takes them 1-2 weeks to reply. Given all that's going on in the world, I'm worried they might fire me before I even start.

I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!
