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

Pros

great, great, great culture
very large addressable market w/o established leaders means for a high-potential outcome
you feel like you're really genuinely solving problems for your customers

Cons

work/life balance is a dream
very messy legacy processes - typical startup growing pains
lots of external hiring for senior positions has potential to go very badly w/r to culture, continuity, mission

Advice to ManagementAdvice

fire faster - we need to keep the bar high, and letting projects or departments suffer due to ineffective contributers or managers is only making things worse.

    Pros

    Amazing People (I have the team of my dreams)
    Invigorating Work Environment
    Opportunities to Create New Programs
    Everyone Gets to Make a Real Contribution to Our Total Future Success
    Fun and Play are Encouraged as Much as Hard Work
    RAINBOWS & UNICORNS!!

    Cons

    We've hired so many people, and we're moving so fast, that we don't get a chance to know each other better.
    A small handful of people here only think about what's in it for them, when they should be thinking more about how they can add value to the team as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep developing our talent, and promoting from within.
    Listen to your Boxers - they are super smart, motivated, and have great ideas to help scale Box.

    Pros

    Super smart people.

    Developers trust each other.
    Super fun.
    Really encouraged to speak up, be a part of the team.
    Encouraged to seek out challenges.

    You are encouraged to take time to think about where you want to grow. Management will then work with you to get you there.
    Hard work is recognized, both in company wide meetings and in benefits/rewards.

    I can honestly say that this is an amazing environment. If you are a smart, hard working, trustworthy and love challenges, then your will be very fulfilled at Box.

    Cons

    No matching 401k.
    The lunches could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing great. Keep investing in talent and rewarding that talent. A matching 401(k) would be awesome.
