    I worked at Box as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Up-and-coming tech company Fun startup atmosphere

    Cons

    Contractors at Box not treated the way contractors should be - a contractor legally should not be held to the same terms that a full-time employee is, i.e., you should be allowed to work from home, set your own hours, etc. Box treats their contractors like any other full-time employee, but deny them the benefits that come with full time employment. Furthermore, many of the contractors have been at the company for over a year, or multiple years. If someone is skilled enough to do the work of any other regular employee, Box should not be able to keep people as contractors simply because it is a better deal for them. They also do not pay contractors overtime.

    Advice to Management

    The way you are using contractors is legally wrong and morally wrong. If someone is skilled enough to do the job of a full-time employee, you should hire them as a full-time employee. It is wrong to deny someone full-time employment because you can get them for a better deal. You are also walking the line of legal wrong-doing here.

    I worked at Box as a contractor

    Pros

    Everyone is so friendly and personable. Was able to work with very intelligent and creative people.

    Cons

    Company is moving very quickly--too much to do, too little time. However this is the nature of a fast-paced growing company so I wasn't surprised by the amount of work

    Advice to Management
