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

    Pros

    The biggest pro is the work culture and the people you get to work with - everyone is brilliant and open to new ideas/innovation. The product itself is constantly innovating with the ever-changing tech environment. The benefits and perks are top notch.

    Cons

    No 401k match at this point in time since Box is still a young and growing company.

    Advice to Management

    As Box grows, there are definitely some processes that could be streamlined within the business to become a more scalable organization as we grow.
