Just considering the VPN, remember that a VPN is a bit like a one-hop Tor node. You could accomplish the same task as a VPN by simply configuring Tor to add one additional hop in the route.

Alice should definitely do this on her home PC and not on her work computer. It might be compromised by various spying methods by corporate IT. Also, when the corporate IT admins aren't grossly negligent, they wouldn't allow a TOR node to operate from within their corporate network anyway. A sufficiently configured corporate network doesn't allow ...

A real security expert with a sense of professionalism would advise Alice to use above-board means to achieve her goals. The scenario above could work, however she would then be basing career advancement on a lie which she wouldn't have the knowledge to defend if she needed to.
