This chapter uses the case of Sergei to show the huge difference in moral worlds between public and private sectors in Russia, and the difficulties of a researcher achieving emotional empathy across such cultural divides. In this chapter, the questions: what is the difference in business culture between these two spheres in the eye of professionals?; what are the significant advantages and disadvantages of each situation from the standpoint of career choice?; and are these cultural models the leitmotif of professional choice? are addressed and examined.

Keywords: Sergei; public sectors; private sectors; Russia; business culture; cultural models
