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

Pros

Working for a company that has leadership that is as passionate about the company as they are about the employees and product is very refreshing. Lots of added perks to the job such as, great offices, ergonomic desks, great snacks, free lunch and on-going training in different areas of your expertise, etc.

Cons

The challenges of a growing company are not for everyone, things change quickly and it requires you to adjust and adapt on a dime.

Advice to Management

Keep investing in your current employees and management team! Make changes fast...

    Pros

    Quickly growing organization. Great Product, Great executive level leadership

    cultural transitional period. Treading a fine line between being an employee and being a number. Career development is lacking, and work effort is not recognized or rewarded

    I worked at Box full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good product. Company addressing a large market opportunity. Potentially, a future platform play. Some good folks working there too (platform, recruiting, customer success). Fun, youngish, sometimes borderline silly culture.

    Cons

    Getting very fat at the top. The company has too many VP's and above, enjoying rich compensation, which weighs down on the P&L. Sales, Biz Dev, Marketing,..you name it. Levie is too inexperienced and all over the map. Levin delegates down and manages up. Others have been there too long (grandfathered in despite their incompetency) or simply are playing politics as the company grows. None of the senior exec staff took responsibility for mistakes in timing and content on the S-1, rather focus on firing under the table and trimming, which is not a good sign long-term. Many customers state that they are now using Box just as cloud storage, which is a commodity. The company may see churn increase.

    Advice to Management

    Have a hard, honest look in the mirror. You should be focused on building a long-lasting great enterprise software company, not an IPO pop.
