Another Ethical Dilemma

Reacting to the MBA Oath, an anonymous writer sent in an ethical dilemma to Careermee.com’s blog. The writer, an executive with a South American company, wrestles with a situation in which a company is faced with multiple dillemmas. The CEO is planning to bribe a government official in order to secure a contract, while the executive faces a lack of whistleblower protections, their own job on the line, and ambivalence about hurting the company at a time when  2100 jobs may be at stake.

We know that the ends do not justify the means and that rationalization of unethical behavior is very tempting, but how would you handle this situation?
