    I have been working at Box full-time

    Pros

    -The people hands down. I have really enjoyed being here and have a learned a lot from some really kind, smart and humble people.
    -The perks are always nice, especially lunch as the kitchen staff is amazing.
    -There's some transparency but I've noticed it start to slip away a lot more as Box has grown.
    -A lot of opportunity for side projects and cross functionality, but mainly driven by you.
    - I think a lot of work life balance depends on the team you're on but there doesn't seem to be a lot of people pulling crazy hours a lot.

    Cons

    -There are a lot of people who have been at Box for a while and have become managers because of tenure, not experience, which makes for a lot of disjointed management as people are "Figuring it out" and given a lot of faith to do well without help even though they're newer managers.
    -Top heavy company, not a lot of roles for younger people to start out in.
    -A lot of experienced managers leaving lately.
    -People team is a mess even with a new CPO, she doesn't seem to care to spend time with her teams that need direction and her focus seems mainly on exec.
    - Also, 401K match ya'll, get with it!

    Advice to Management

    -Think about scale, let some new fresh blood come in and help them grow.
    -Promote people who deserve to be managers, not just people who have been here for years.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Great food. Great location

    Cons

    When I joined Box there was a very high level of autonomy given to each engineer. Engineering culture was great. Over time i've seen Box grow more bureaucratic and the engineering culture decay. I think the engineering culture is still good, but it has gotten worse.

    Pros

    * Top level leadership (Aaron & Dylan) are genuinely good human beings that seem to care quite a bit about their employee base.
    * Product/Platform seem to be on the right track.
    * Compensation is aggressive (in spots)
    * The company is filled (in spots) with some amazing people

    Cons

    * Lower and middle management is filled with clueless, self-entitled, junior-level "leaders".
    * A ridiculous amount of thrash in different spots of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be "young and hip". There are going to be times when a tenured, seasoned leader is needed to run pieces of the business. Promoting internal mobility at the expense of the company's well-being, doesn't make much sense.
