    Pros

    I know I can make a difference. The company has retained an entrepreneurial angle and the subject matter keeps it fun.

    Cons

    As a private company I know I can never have any skin in the game. The opportunity to build options elsewhere may eventually be more valuable than the benefit of a family business
