If you're doing this sort of nest ternary operator here's a way to lay it out so people can read it.  Also you can assign the result to a variable and then use that in a single method call - so there's less code to change if you rename "user.setName".
 
String name = 
   (user == manager) ? "MANAGER"
   : (user == CEO) ? "CEO"
     : (user == CLERK) ? "CLERK"
       : "" ;

user.setName(name) ;
