    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

    Doesn't Recommend

    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.
