So how good it the morals and ethics where you are working?
(mostly about doing things you shouldn't have done or should have done)


I think mine is well, execpt one guy being a bit well.. in the wrong side of things (mostly I think its because he don't know what hes doing)

Well, I have a pretty interesting work environment to say the least. I do Cyber Security as a government employee so there's a lot of expected professionlism involved (upfront at least lol). While the work we do we take seriously, everything else is basically fair game. Everyone says whatever they want to who they want. Bosses and workers alike. As long as no one is breaking procedure or doing anything to bring heat on us, anything goes. You can cuss, play games, eat whenever, talk on the phone, make inappropriate jokes, etc. It's pretty awesome lol.

I work in a civil service setting, so it is kind of the know your audience deal. Because anyone can get offended and get you in trouble. Just be smart and professional and you can still have fun. That's why I love the show Servant x Service! Wish they had more shows like that...all good I'm waiting for the 3rd season of Wagnaria!

Ethics and morals are very important for anyone working in IT. We regularly have access to many levels of information in a company, including sensitive information like payroll, plans/ingredients, HR, and other proprietary data. Most companies I've worked for have you sign an agreement before hire that you won't abuse your rights and you're subject to immediate termination if you do. And there's been a few times I've seen that happen. All that power is tempting - for example, I worked in health care once, and I know that even just a quick peek at Aaron Rodger's medical record will not only get you fired, but likely in legal trouble as well. It happened, which is how I know (but it wasn't me that did it).

Even now, being in education, ethics and morals are important. I have to keep student data secure, be prepared to refer people to appropriate individuals when necessary, and balance not only what's happening in my life, but the lives of 130 other people. It may not seem like a lot, but then you add in their family, and the family's family, and all of a sudden you're in the thousands. It does get a bit overwhelming at times, but I try not to let myself get too involved.

Yeah can be hard if you suddenly say something personal info etc (when you either though it was fine there and then or it were glipping out of your mouth)
atleast we got (I guess you would call it a silence contract) where you can't say the names or why they are there (mostly not outside of it, -public-)

In music, there's the right to express, but you have to watch yourself.

Yeah, it can get complicated. If someone even sees the information I'm breaking privacy laws. We have to remember that when a parent of an adult student calls and asks about grades we can't discuss it without the student's written consent. Sometimes the parents get a little angry about that.

Corporations are amoral.

Corporations aren't people.

Corporations must at least put up an ethical front (e.g. adhere to rules) but not really engage in the direction of morality (i.e. general "good"- lest it has to do with image and/or profits)

That's the way it is.
