Pros

Working at Box is a dream come true. I don't understand how this company merits less than 5 stars on Glassdoor. It must be people who expected to come in and be respected for not contributing anything. One thing is for sure, Box hires the best, and they expect the best. Now that we are pushing 450+, it is harder and harder to stand out but there are so many motivational factors to put in 110%. We have a lot of VP's, and they are all the brightest most down to earth people I have ever worked with. It is open seating, there are no offices, no cubicles. You might be sitting next to a VP, or the COO. It doesn't matter what your role is, if you have an idea you speak up, and you are listened to, it is truely an amazing place to work. Free breakfast/lunch/dinner More snacks and food than you could want New office is unbelievable - slide, ping pong, pool table, TV's, amazing conference rooms Nationally recognized rewards - office, product, management, founders You have the chance to contribute and be listened to by upper management Free Caltrain pass (pretty sure that alone is a $2k value) Subsidized gym and cell phone Random happy hours on Thursday and Friday Company sponsored events (SF Giants!)

Cons

Everything is constantly changing in flux. When you are hiring at 10x you can't keep the same processes for long. It gets overwhelming sometimes, but you know that everyday won't be the same. Scalable processes still haven't been put into place, but it is up to us to come up with those processes and implement them. Also career track isn't quite established in the sales group, but this could be a good thing for some. Instead of advancing in the sales team, it is possible to move horizontally to a different department

Advice to Management

Keep going 10x. This space is so hot right now, it is ours to lose. We have the most amazing product by far, it is a dream to sell, but once we become complacent we will lose the race. Keep doing what you are doing, the whole company is behind you and the morale is incredibly high

    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 Management

    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
