Case 20: Preference

Angelo has an intriguing but difficult decision ahead of him. In making it, he should take a long look at himself and the direction he desires his career path to take. How important is immediate monetary success versus long-range security to him? What are his long-term goals? If Angelo becomes impatient and frustrated over slow but steady progress, he should think twice about joining a company that has modest growth potential and makes a practice of promoting from within. The zigzag route to the top might be best.

On the other hand, if Angelo is comfortable with slower but more secure growth, Company B may be his better choice. Company B may provide more and better training, will perhaps encourage him to get an advanced college degree in management at its expense, and will offer a more comprehensive benefit package. Of course, all of this depends upon the future stability of the company. Even firms with strong PFW policies must sometimes go through reorganizations, consolidations, and layoffs.
