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

Pros

Amazing People (I have the team of my dreams)
Invigorating Work Environment
Opportunities to Create New Programs
Everyone Gets to Make a Real Contribution to Our Total Future Success
Fun and Play are Encouraged as Much as Hard Work
RAINBOWS & UNICORNS!!

Cons

We've hired so many people, and we're moving so fast, that we don't get a chance to know each other better.
A small handful of people here only think about what's in it for them, when they should be thinking more about how they can add value to the team as a whole.

Advice to Management

Keep developing our talent, and promoting from within.
Listen to your Boxers - they are super smart, motivated, and have great ideas to help scale Box.

    Developers trust each other.

    Hard work is recognized, both in company wide meetings and in benefits/rewards.

    I can honestly say that this is an amazing environment. If you are a smart, hard working, trustworthy and love challenges, then your will be very fulfilled at Box.

    Cons

    No matching 401k.
    The lunches could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Doing great. Keep investing in talent and rewarding that talent. A matching 401(k) would be awesome.

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

    Pros

    Great mission and business model
    Super intelligent and fun team mates who work collaboratively
    Challenging and inspiring work
    This is the best place I have ever worked from an all round perspective (Mission, role, team, boss, compensation)

    Cons

    I have gained some weight because of all the free food and snacks they have
    I just spent the day on a scavenger hunt in San Fransisco for team building. My group so wanted to win (and we did) that we ran everywhere (up and down the streets) to get the clues for 2 hours and I am total sore!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, recognize where we can get better and help lead us to achieve our full potential
