I have been in discussions with a family run business about a new role. Three siblings own the company and are the only shareholders. It is a mid-sized company, 100-200 employees. I have real reservations about working for a family business, having worked for that sort of operation before I found at the end of the day the family ultimately comes first, both for profits, promotions, and decision making. The HR rep assured me the siblings are involved but there is also a non family member in the CEO role. I can only see negatives around a family owned business but would appreciate any positives that you could share.
