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

    Pros

    Amazing culture. One of the best anywhere, and by far the best I've ever experienced.
    Compensation seems consistently above market average.
    BEST ESPP I've seen of any tech company I've worked for (including Apple).
    Free in-house lunches and snacks.
    Very strong and innovative product.
    Lots of opportunity to move laterally and vertically. This company wants to help you achieve your longterm career goals.
    Best job I've ever had, for real.

    Cons

    Locations for headcount can be pretty strict.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving our values as and their role in the business decisions. That is a huge part of what keeps Box such a great place to work.

    Never have I worked somewhere where everybody is friendly, cares about your success, and are some of the smartest people around. I think the leadership really makes an effort to make every employee feel valued and special, and I'm all about that.

    Cons

    Still trying to figure out our product-market fit is tough, but this is part of the growing pains

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Some amazing people work here at box. It's a good learning experience to interact with them.
    Company values reflect in most teams interactions
    Great in+house kitchen and snack options
    Amazing benefits but no 401k matching

    Cons

    Middle management feels inexperienced both for product and engineering orgs
    Lack of clear direction in terms of product growth from higher management
    Getting rid of non performers is really hard and this drags the teams down

    Advice to Management

    Finalize a strategy and go for it. Please don't change the course every year
    Fix the engineering org issues by focusing on quality of crucial existing services instead of building new products for showcase
    Please fill the long vacant positions. Many teams don't have managers or PMs that interact on a daily basis and that's clearly not working
