Pros

free food(lunch/dinner)
free parking
gym subsidy
young college age crowd

Cons

long commute from san francisco, think thrice about this if you live in city

people work too hard. only sales people appreciate each other, rest of the company is in a different world altogether

Really long hours at office(very early mornings or beyond midnights depending on your dept), dont bother applying if you are not comfortable with it. this is a strong reason you will find young crowd here at box

company is now 400+ and does have a lot of problems to manage chaos internally and keep external investors happy. its not a startup!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hire more people or stop making/maintaining things that do not generate revenue

ask other companies who have gone through such a time period and how they managed to sail through

    Pros

    Box has a fun and youthful workforce that's given an opportunity to take on challenges and demonstrate their ability to own greater responsibility than they would have at other companies.

    Cons

    Things move very fast here, and it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of hyper-growth. Employees need to be careful not to let the excitement of the place interfere with their work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your foot off of the gas! The time is now to take the company to the next level.

    Pros

    Box is a great company! Growing fast with lots of opportunity to advance in your career path. They are always looking to maximize the talents they have in-house already.

    Cons

    Pay is at start-up rates. No matter how much experience, skills, and success you have achieved in past positions....their pay is below comparable market rates. Negotiate heavily upfront and get all comp/terms on the offer letter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to acquire top talent....you need to be able to pay for it!
