    Pros

    There are too many to mention them all. Meaningful work, set your own schedule, free healthcare, remote working, However, the Tribe (we don't have employees) is the #1 Pro in my mind. From the moment you walk in as a new hire, you are treated like you've been part of the Tribe for years. Everyone actually cares about everyone else, takes an active interest in each other's lives and honestly want to help each other... be better people all around. JT (the CEO) is simultaneously the most humble example of servant leadership I've ever seen, while somehow also being the hardest working hustler since Ray Kroc. The second biggest pro is that you are treated like an adult. No looking over your shoulder or arbitrary rules to follow, just get your work done and be an adult and you'll be treated like one. You can have honest conversations, be your real and whole self, take time for family and hobbies, etc without anyone thinking less of you; the contrary in fact. In my time here so far, BIAB has so exceeded my already high expectations it's hard to even put into words. It took almost a month before I stopped looking for the "other shoe to drop", but it never did! This place is actually as amazing as it seems looking in from the outside, better actually! Everyone here is absolutely stellar and if you get the chance to even meet anyone from BIAB you'll be better off for it, I'm still in shock that I get to surround myself with them every day.

    Cons

    I think if you are the right fit you won't really find any "cons", but I think there are a lot of things that might be considered a con by those considering applying. The two pros I mentioned above can be cons if you are the kind of person that likes to "fly under the radar" or "rest and vest", you'll find none of that here. If you are insecure and like to be told you are better than you really are, you won't like... it here. Everyone here is a superstar, literally everyone! I feel like the least accomplished person in the room every day, but I love it because I get to learn from these people too. You'll be told your strengths and weaknesses honestly in a way that helps you grow, but if you don't like hearing about what you can improve on, it could be a con. Also, you must hold yourself accountable. There is no schedule, time cards, etc to keep you on task, you are expected to be able to handle your responsibilities and manage your own schedule. If you have a challenging time self-motivating or stay focused, you’ll have a tough time.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing we haven't already talked about! That's another pro, being able to talk directly with the CEO, one that actually values your input.

    Pros

    You get to collaborate with amazing people doing incredible things; all while changing people's lives. You get to make an impact. You're constantly supported, challenged, and encouraged to grow and learn in every way...I didn't think that sort of place existed. But it does. And it's here. I love waking up each day and knowing that I will have a day full of critical thinking, creativity, laughter and support. I am... grateful every day that this is the place I'm lucky enough to work, and these are the people I'm lucky enough to work alongside.

    Cons

    It's fast paced and exciting. If you prefer not to have that in your career, this probably isn't the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the constant support and inspiration. Keep it up! :)

    Pros

    A lot of companies talk about culture, but then simply refer to a framed list of tenets hung on the wall after you've signed on. Not Book In A Box. By the end of my orientation, I discovered how seriously this company took the notion of hiring for culture first, skillset second. I've never felt more at home, nor have I ever truly felt I was pursuing a career until I joined BIAB.

    Cons

    The only "downside" is that everything happens at startup speed. Change in processes is frequent, but always for the better. Not a con for those not averse to rapid change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    We get to build a life that works for us, on our schedule, and that prioritizes the things we hold dear. We structure our lives in a way that achieves Goals - not career goals or personal goals - now they are the same goals. We work with authors who have tremendous knowledge of so many different subjects - and we learn from every single one. For a lifelong learner, that is an amazing benefit. Fun things about... working here: Your dogs will love that you work from home. You can burn --I mean donate-- all your suits/blazers. You have to worry about your mother actually reading one of Tucker's books.

    Cons

    Because you're passionate about what you do, you'll want to do it all the time. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but your family might not like it. You own your time, so manage it like you mean it!
