Abstract

This is part of a case series. In December 2006, Ethan felt he was at a crossroads. After 18 years at Empire, a multibillion-dollar entertainment conglomerate, he had just received a poor performance review and no bonus from his boss, VP Mary Wrathton - who he called 'Bloody Mary', because he felt she was out for his blood. Ethan was considering leaving the company for greener pastures, where his skills in combining art and business for profit may be better appreciated. But Bloody Mary was being transferred overseas to another Empire division, so he could stay in his position, build his credibility with his new boss, and continue his career at Empire. He reflected on his 18 years with the company - with its ups and downs - and he wondered what he should do next.
