    I worked at Box as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, everyone is very friendly and eager to share their knowledge. I was treated equally as a full-time engineer. I was told on day one that I could do any work on the table, not just the intern projects. I ended up doing 2 major projects and a handful of feature developments and bug fixings here and there. I truly enjoyed this internship and learnt a lot.

    Cons

    No cons I can think of.

    I worked at Box as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The most exciting time to be at Box: it's growing fast, gearing up for an IPO, but still small enough that the startup spirit is still there, and that you get to see the higher-level execs often. Charismatic CEO & CFO (Aaron Levie and Dylan Smith, the early founders) and COO (Dan Levin). Great collaboration between teams and across services in the company, and a lot of space to make your ideas heard.

    Cons

    Because it grew so fast, there is a lot of technical debt, a lot of things to fix, and, overall, a lot of work. Risk that the startup culture will gradually fade away. Food could be better, and the building is starting to feel small again.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great!
