I lived this scenario in the electronics industry. I worked for a large distributor in the 90s and the founder (who started by selling parts out of his car in the 50's) ran it like a family, even though it was $500M+ - and it felt like it. In the early 2000's I worked for a huge global distributor ($20B+) and in 3 years took my group from a solid #3 out of 3 to #1 - and my reward was a layoff phone call. I had a concern when I hired in that one of the company's core values on their mission statement was "Maximize shareholder profitability" - doesn't exactly foster long term relationships with employees, customers and suppliers. This is a perfect analogy - thank you for the post.
