Would you ever hire someone after they were fired for an ethical lapse (not illegal - violation of the COC)?

Nope. Plenty of other folks out there

Depends on what ethical line was crossed. Did they buy groceries as a meal but stayed in budget (vs having to eat on site or at a restaurant like some policies state)? Yeah, that's a mistake they're not likely to make again (nor cross any other similar lines). Did they sign off on something that they didn't do? Probably not because I don't think I could trust someone if they got behind again, which is going to happen

As a follow-up, if they were fired for it, it probably wasn't something minor unless the company was trying to save face. So my gut would definitely say no

For the past 2 years I’ve been scrambling for digital projects at Accenture and even took management and data projects (neither I was qualified to do, but the teams needed help) to avoid too much time on the bench and getting fired- I’ve been working for almost 4 yrs but I only just got a 20% raise to $85k. When I see people here talk about making way way more for less experience, I wonder if I’m being underpaid. And how would I start a negotiation for a raise or look for other opportunities??
