UPB management will be able to capitalize on the five years of training and other investments in Mark Williams

Mark was offered a new job that would grant him more benefits (financial and non-financial). The ethical question relies in whether or not he should take the job and generate negative impacts upon the company that believed in him when no one else would.
Both of the available alternatives generate a series of implications. Leaving the company creates feelings of guilt but offer opportunities for career development. Remaining with UPB translates into loyalty, but accompanied by frustration. The most ethical decision is that of remaining within UPB, despite the personal disadvantages it creates for Mark Williams. Given this status quo then, the final refection is that the most ethical decision, or the right decision, is not always in the best interest of the individual.

Critical Thinking Application "Every job, and every company, can benefit from critical thinking" (Pauker, 2010). Pauker makes this assertion with good reason. In considering this argument, Pauker suggests taking a second to think about any job, and the daily responsibilities and decisions that people need to make. She argues that if one considers the margin of error that could ultimately cost a company a project, a client, profits or even its
