I'm currently interviewing with a privately held firm that has been passed from father to son. The position is very exciting to me and is clearly a fit on my career progression.
Being a private firm, there is hardly any information available as to the company structure, market share, etc other than what they want to tell me. I've checked every public resource that I can find, but the information is very superficial and doesn't provide a lot of information.
If I receive an offer, would it be a faux pas if I asked for more information about the company? I wouldn't dare ask for financial statements, but would things like the following be ok between the times when I receive an offer and provide a formal response to the offer?
1. Articles of Incorporation
2. Org Chart
3. Any other useful non-public information
