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

Pros

Young workforce that fosters meeting people and making friends, enough snacks, etc. are provided to cover at least breakfast and lunch, free Caltrain passes, shuttles to/from SF, subsidized gym memberships, exciting time to be part of the company.

Cons

Internal mobility is not impossible but it's not easy, middle management is inexperienced and lacks the skill set to effectively manage teams, work-life balance is non-existent, pay is not competitive unless you are an engineer.

    Pros

    Extremely strong executive team, fiscal discipline, strategic planning and impressive ability to execute very quickly. Sales culture is very supportive and respectful. Everybody is super collaborative, funny, and hard working and wants everyone else to be successful.

    Cons

    Company is in hyper-growth. Can be challenging to solve today's problems with solutions that massively scale. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it though and Boxers relish the challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take the foot off the gas. We execute better than anyone in the business. Raise the bar higher and let us show you high high we can jump.
