    I have been working at Box full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great mission and business model
    Super intelligent and fun team mates who work collaboratively
    Challenging and inspiring work
    This is the best place I have ever worked from an all round perspective (Mission, role, team, boss, compensation)

    Cons

    I have gained some weight because of all the free food and snacks they have
    I just spent the day on a scavenger hunt in San Fransisco for team building. My group so wanted to win (and we did) that we ran everywhere (up and down the streets) to get the clues for 2 hours and I am total sore!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, recognize where we can get better and help lead us to achieve our full potential

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Los Altos, CA

    I have been working at Box full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Awesome people: the employees are generally open and happy to collaborate and help each other
    - Working with a product that customers love and solves a real pain point for businesses
    - A focus on fostering a fast-paced fun culture even as the company evolves into an enterprise software company
    - Super fast growth both in terms of business and organization

    Cons

    - Super fast growth: at times we've struggled with evolving processes and culture to match our growth. I think management is aware of the issues and have worked to keep the culture and implement sane processes, but it's hard sometimes
    - The HQ is a little far from the caltrain station, though it's still definitely walkable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's going to be key to keep the culture fast paced and young-feeling, even as we continue to grow. It's important that we don't become a big boring enterprise software company.
