    Pros

    Box is an incredible place. I have worked in sales organizations in all types of technology companies from big enterprises to super hot startups. Box's culture blows them all away. Box is the only company I have ever worked for that makes you feel like you truly belong there and are truly valued by your peers and managers. Every day I feel like I'm making a difference in the company and I can't think of one company in the Valley that I would want to work for instead.

    Cons

    The product itself is starting to have more and more competition. New features on the road map will surely start to turn things around but SAAS in general is new to most enterprise companies and sometimes hard to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let Box's growth take anything away from the current culture. It is truly special and can not be found anywhere else.

    Pros

    I've worked in the London office for coming up to a year. I love it. The job itself is varied, interesting and full of opportunities for growth. The staff are hard working, team orientated and incredibly co-operative. The environment is open, honest and playful.
