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

    Pros

    Fun environment, fast-growing space, potential to disrupt a large market and therefore, potential large business opportunity. Solid board of advisors. If you live in the area or nearby, it is great. For folks in SF or SJ, commute might not be great.

    Cons

    Box wants to be another Salesforce.com. It has a very expensive and not too-scalable direct sales model, which sooner or later will weigh them down as a public company.They have hired an unusually large number of VP and above-level individuals, which is also expensive. Too many VP-cooks in the kitchen and politicking slowing down decision-making. Some old-timers (in alliances, sales, product and engineering) stay there because of personal ties, despite their performance and/or behavior being dismal. Some really good folks resigned or were given no other choice but to leave. There have been under the table layoffs and plenty of turnover. Young founders. Diverging views between CEO and COO.

    Advice to Management

    You are your very own worst enemy. Get your act together.

    I worked at Box as a contractor

    Pros

    Everyone is so friendly and personable. Was able to work with very intelligent and creative people.

    Cons

    Company is moving very quickly--too much to do, too little time. However this is the nature of a fast-paced growing company so I wasn't surprised by the amount of work

    Advice to Management
