Re: Bribes? No thanks
I've been in that situation. Company policy was 100% cast iron that no-one could accept gifts of any kind; then I found out that one of the execs had gone away on holiday and when he and his family got back, they had a brand new kitchen. I'm told that it cost about £5,000 and that was in the days that a 2 bedroom house sold for £19,000.
Most recently, I'm in a situation where someone appears to have done a backhand deal that means the place I work at is paying for the licences that are being actually used by another business that the FD has a relationship with. I queried this, but the issue is being swept under the carpet; and I suspect that because I keep querying why they tolerate this, my services may not be required much longer.
