Morals can be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on how you look at it.
For example, someone who doesn't care whether or not they hurt someone or screw them over may do very well in terms of their occupation, etc. Like, you might steal your coworkers clients, or be dishonest or manipulative towards your clients in order to get them to make a purchase or investment, even if it's against their best interest. The result might be that you get promotions, work your way up in the company, and make lots of money. Someone who is morally against doing those things might not be as successful.
On the other hand, being a moral/good person might mean that more people like you, they see you as trustworthy and dependable, etc. Thus, you may have lots of friends and people who care for you, people who will support you. Because people like and trust you, more opportunities may come your way. People who don't care who they may hurt or betray will lose friends and support.
It's important to note, too, that morals are subjective in the sense that different people have different beliefs about what's moral and immoral. Believing something to be immoral when it doesn't actually cause any harm may mean that you miss out on things in life that you wouldn't otherwise. Believing something is moral when in reality it harms other people could mean that you're harming other people for no good reason.1
