A career: something admirable or something else?

"Only those who decline to scramble up the career ladder are interesting as human beings. Nothing is more boring than a man with a career." - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
But also consider:
"A decent man is not responsible for the vice or absurdity of his profession; and he ought not on that account refuse to pursue it; [. . .]there is money to be got by it, a man must live in the world and make the best of it, such as it is." - Michel de Montaigne
