I work at a large family-owned business which has deep historical roots and traditions. I enjoy the work and the environment, but there is a very common (and I guess obvious) issue in here:
Somehow, most people in senior management are part of the family or relatives (which is obvious, due to the fact that it is a family business), and many younger family members are easily fast-tracked to higher positions.
I wonder whether despite this kind of formal nepotism there can be ways to prove oneself and advance in the ranks of a family business - despite not being part of the family?
If you have been in similar situations, please share what has helped you maintain a good visibility and progress well within a family company
