    Hopefully you were a) aware of their practices before you were employed, and b) they knew your sparkly whiteness when they hired you?

    "Black Hat" techniques can be very technical, but that doesn't mean I haven't seen such practitioners completely shown up by "White Hat" experts either.

    Take it on the chin, and see who has the last laugh...

    I won't recommend black hat SEO, because it is dangerous and bring us a lot of spamming content.

    Although i had never fallen in this condition but yes can suggest to leave the organization which is not following the white hat seo terms.It will harm your online reputation.

    Note that question is not "What is better, white hat or black hat?", so please stop answering that question.
    Also note that the OP is already hired by the company, so advise not to go work there is futile.
    Thank you.

    Well technically you would be an entry level black hat SEO practitioner.

    You could be a senior PHP developer and a junior Java developer, I don't see this being any different.
