    I have been working at Box full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Box is a "Goldilocks" company. Not too big, not too small... Just right. It's leadership and organization is nimble enough to move fast, make quick changes and always position itself ahead of the competition: Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Dropbox.

    It also has the perks of a larger tech company: stability, high salaries, free food and snacks, gym and cell phone reimbursement, as well as endless trainings and professional development opportunities.

    Plus: the culture is unique, one of a kind. Boxers are extremely extroverted and quirky. You have full permission to be your authentic self here.

    Cons

    I'm in sales. I feel that marketing isn't where it should be. We have very few inbound leads. This requires me to run full sales cycls. The competition is fierce. This is an increasingly commoditized space. However, I believe in Aaron.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix the marketing funnel and supply sales with more inbound leads who are bought into our cloud content management story.

    Pros

    Talented peers and great technology. Aaron is very funny and a visionary. Company and product is light years ahead of competition.

    Cons

    Micromanagement by local sales management makes senior enterprise team feel like children. Many reps have more experience than the managers. Don't treat us like we are new to sales or sales process.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat enterprise team like children.

    Great Culture, Great People, Really good environment to learn and grow. Box is one of the unique companies in the bay area with a GSD attitude but also the right platform to do so.

    Senior management not very mature, need to hire more senior managers with industry experience.

    Pros

    The culture is amazing! There are happy hours, the ability to work from home, the employees are really sharp and friendly. Management listens to concerns and does their very best to address them.

    Cons

    The only con is that it could be more diverse like all of tech. There aren't very many people of color but everyone treats each other with respect so it makes it a lot better.
