Family firms are different and anyone considering working in a family business needs to do some homework first, whether they are family members or not.

Family firms have a unique culture and are often driven by the family, history and heritage, as it evolves over time.  This unique mix can be hard for some to bear, but on the contrary can be very rewarding too.

It would be good to really get beneath the skin of the business, the desires for the future, culture and values to ensure it fits your own personal journey too.
