What are the ethical standards a corporation should use as it's North Star?

Should these standards govern how businesses treat employees, competitors, regulations, and/or lobbying activities?

It's different for every company...each company has its own unique mission and purpose, and has to define for itself what standards it should hold itself to (beyond the law). And part of that is understanding who its stakeholders are -- investors, employees, customers, government, for example, and how it will treat those stakeholders.

I think so Associate OP. I do believe we're going to see increased pressure on companies from all sides -- employees, customers, government regulators, press -- to offset each company's environmental impact.

Hi!Would like to get some perspectives on the Walmart and Amazon offers that I just received. Slightly more interested in Amazon Fashion's work but it's offered at $80K less than Walmart...
A few questions here:
1) Is the Amazon brand better than Walmart that's worth $80K in TC?
2) Are Strategy roles better perceived than Marketing roles and will have higher long-term pay potential? (I went to business school where almost everybody wants to do Strategy...)
3) Is Amazon culture very concerning?
