    I have been working at Box full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Amazing culture. One of the best anywhere, and by far the best I've ever experienced. Compensation seems consistently above market average. BEST ESPP I've seen of any tech company I've worked for (including Apple). Free in-house lunches and snacks. Very strong and innovative product. Lots of opportunity to move laterally and vertically. This company wants to help you achieve your longterm career goals. Best job...

    Locations for headcount can be pretty strict.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Box full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexible, good work life balance. I really appreciate leadership realizing that life isn't black and white, and make room for doctors appointments, family matters, etc. I respect our C levels and think that they are kind, moral people.

    Cons

    Toxic culture fueled on nepotism and lots of ego. The culture is stale and lacking, and the opportunity for advancement is limited based on location. This has been a great name to put on my resume, but I'd say the learning experiences have been dismal.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been with the company more that 4 years doesn't make them good. Just because someone beats their chest the loudest doesn't make them the most qualified. Address the petty lunch room culture fostered by the more 'tenured' employees. Address the employee attrition on certain teams. Address the external factors affecting the company. Ultimately, adapt.

    Pros

    Open work culture. Good engineering team. Great food.

    Cons

    Not a stellar growth maybe due to the market in which the company operates. Lot of pressure to get things done (GSD) but poor organizational structure to accomplish it. Many old timers left creating a vacuum

        Pros

        Great culture and people. Boxers are smart, caring, and motivating to work with. Make mom proud culture really carries throughout work.

        Cons

        Pay equality and employee growth within the company needs work. Leadership is mostly older white males and there is a lot of talk, but not a huge effort to hire diverse Boxers.

        Advice to Management

        Hire more diverse talent and promote diversity from within!
