Profession Ethics/Morals 

Recently, I've found myself in a position where I could pursue a new job in a different sector, one specifically centered around entertainment.

When I originally entered the work force, I had two job opportunities: medical device manufacturer or a Department of Defense contractor. I struggled with the idea of working on a project that "success" meant a better killing device. This was a personal decision and I find no fault with others who work there. It was that I, personally, struggled with being in that profession.

I'm in a similar scenario right now. I have the opportunity for a job in the gaming industry, more specifically, the casino electronic gambling industry. Knowing that so many people struggle with gambling addiction, could I personally be OK working in this sector? Again, this is not casting judgment on others, but rather, making sure that I'm at peace within myself.

I realize that I have to find my own balance, but I wanted to pose this question to . Have you ever struggled with your personal moral/ethical positions on a project/job that you were working on?

I'd love to hear from everyone on their thoughts and experiences.

@QuantumHemp Absolutely, I want to make sure that I am happy in whatever I do; realizing, that money does not mean happiness.
