Patrice.  Just use bstrap with the cluster option (your firm id variable is
your cluster id) this provides a resample of clusters, not observations.
Also, have a look at "Analysis of Household Survey Data" by Angus Deaton.
He provides hand-written stata code for dealing w/ similar type issues
(individuals within households).
