currently employed post MBA

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Los Altos, CA

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

ProsIncredible growth, visionary leader, and the opportunity to be a part of a historical upheaval in the Software-as-a-Service market. Great space, incredible snacks, killer food, and Silicon Valley standard perqs.

ConsWhen you grow from 100+ to 600+ some processes are bound to get lost. Box hires smart so the problem is not quality, it's finding the right smart person with whom to collaborate or get a question answered.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Engineers Beware...Don't Work Here

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Los Altos, CA

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


Pros: Free"ish" food. Most people are helpful and nice. They pay pretty well. This is an acceptable place to work… Cons: Box hires rather than promotes from within. Technology stack is on the verge of collapse. The engineering team is consumed with firefighting. … Advice to Senior Management: Good luck. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
