    Default Reject role due to ClientCo's unethical products

    Was speaking to an agent the other day. The role looked good but rejected for two reasons. Firstly it was a permie role but also rejected it as it was for one of those pay day loan companies that I can't stand ... online loan sharks

    Has anyone else rejected a contract because of the company's product before out of interest?

    Nope. Nuclear Power companies, Stockmarkets, Banks, Telco's, Companies that sell bookcases called Billy, Birmingham Chcolate factories, even Universities (shudder), I've worked for them all.

    I would draw the line at non-alcoholic breweries though

    My last contract was with borderline murderers, but they were lovely people.
    Cops will never pull over a man with a huge bong in his car. Why? They fear this man. They know he sees further than they and he will bind them with ancient logics.

    One thing to note is that these types of companies would be unable to operate as they do unless they had competent engineers willing to work for them.

    So, who bears responsibility?

    I couldnt work for the Labour party. Actually I could and I would do my damndest to sabotage whatever it was I had access to. Which probably explains a lot about the countries IT systems.
