No one likes nepotism; except for the relative, of course. The typical result is favoritism and the inability of most employees to rise in rank over a hired relative. And you can just forget about winning in the business's political culture or being fairly treated during social disputes. Don't except true professionalism. That's why, ideally, your better off working for someone who doesn't hire relatives. Or, even better yet, get youself employed by a public company that has to answer to shareholders, is held to stricter standards by the SEC, and is obligated to disclose essential operational and financial information. For example, reading a public company's prospectus can give you important insights - that otherwise, a private company isn't required to divulge.
At a company I used to work for, the CEO hired his brother. It was in a minor position, and he reported to someone far down the chain. And he didn't even work in the office, but from his home. He was held to the same standards as everyone else. It worked out, but I'll admit it's a rare case.
To prevent CV-19, avoid the Serious Seven: weddings, funerals, faith-based activities, bars, gyms, house gatherings and other small events.
