I have been working at Box full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Incredible 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.

Cons

When 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.

    I have been working at Box full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free"ish" food. Most people are helpful and nice. They pay pretty well. This is an acceptable place to work if you are young and inexperienced. Lots of opportunity to fix bugs. Lots of opportunity to make the code stable.

    Cons

    Box hires rather than promotes from within. Technology stack is on the verge of collapse. The engineering team is consumed with firefighting. The pay is not worth the poor (sometimes degrading) treatment by management and technical leadership. My manager talks about their reports and coworkers behind their backs. The founders have to be "handled," because they are incapable of accepting input from others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck.

    Pros

    Readily pursue new technology. Easily contribute and get involved. Open source projects are given time for contributions back to upstream.

    Cons

    Fast pace can be tiresome. Sometimes hard to get completion due to multiple projects at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the drive, keep hiring,
