Current Employee - Software Engineer in Los Altos, CA (US)

I have been working at Box full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Awesome people: the employees are generally open and happy to collaborate and help each other
- Working with a product that customers love and solves a real pain point for businesses
- A focus on fostering a fast-paced fun culture even as the company evolves into an enterprise software company
- Super fast growth both in terms of business and organization

Cons

- Super fast growth: at times we've struggled with evolving processes and culture to match our growth. I think management is aware of the issues and have worked to keep the culture and implement sane processes, but it's hard sometimes
- The HQ is a little far from the caltrain station, though it's still definitely walkable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's going to be key to keep the culture fast paced and young-feeling, even as we continue to grow. It's important that we don't become a big boring enterprise software company.

    Growing quickly and there are things still being worked out...but this is also part of the fun.
