I recently received a full time commission to be a server administrator for a local health care company, one of the only ones hiring for my position around. I like the job, and enjoy the work/hours. Only one issue comes to mind. It is a Methodist hospital, part of the OhioHealth network of hospitals.
I don't work with the patients often, but when I do, I feel that I am lying to them about myself as I represent myself as a religious follower. It bothers me a little bit to be surrounded by the many references to god and such, but since there are no references to it in the work place for myself - the server room - it isn't a prevalent event in my life.
If you were in my shoes, and were a very adamant proponent of freedom of thought/views, would you keep the job temporarily, long term, or quit immediately? It bothers me to lie to the patients, as we are a religious hospital, even if I don't say I am of a religous background, many of them assume I am because of whom I work for. But I can't really tell the patients how I actually feel as that possibly could cause undue stress on the patients and stress on my job.
Quit, stay temporarily, or continue to lie (possibly by omission) about my affiliations...... that is my dilemma. If it wasn't for my need of money and a job, it wouldn't be so hard.
