I currently work for a large "family" business. In my current position as a business efficiency administrator, I have information about every facet of the business practices, as well as confidential information regarding pay scales and cost of doing business information. I'm currently working as a senior HR managers position as well as an operations manager position for the price of an office administrator. I've been offered an executive position at a new firm, but I am worried that because I have insider information and the new firm would be in direct competition with my current employer that it may be unethical to take that job. The pay and lifestyle would be freeing to me though.. so I guess my question is, is it ethical to build a better mouse trap simply because I understand the pitfalls of their mousetrap firsthand?
